Chippin' Away (3: 55)
Words & music by Tom Fedora ©1986 Moondrop Music

They say the mountain is high
And you'll never move it.
Ah, but before I believe that,
They'll just have to prove it.
I have a hammer in my hand,
And faith in my heart.
I've already waited too long,
And I'm ready to start.

Chippin' away, little by little, day by day.
Chippin' away, and the walls will come tumbling down.
Oh what a wonderful sound.

There is a wall around the church,
And a wall around the prison.
I think the wall around your heart, baby
Is blocking out your vision.

So put a hammer in your hand,
And faith in your heart.
You've already waited too long
Aren't you ready to start.

Chippin' away, little by little, day by day.
Chippin' away, and the walls will come tumbling down,
Oh what a wonderful sound.
