John Stewart

Chorus:
Oh, I stood watchin', oh, I stood waitin' and as the rivers of freedom run through this land
I'll be there for to lend you my hand.

(Spoken:)
Well, I listened to the shouting of those with their lies who tore at the heart of this country of mine.

But here's where a quiet man with truth in his hand can make a stand and be heard in this land. So,

(Chorus)

So I stood by the watch road till the October of their days
With the winds to my left and then far from the right, blowing my way

But now is the hour. The time I can see when we'll win with the truth that has made us free. So,

(chorus)
