I stood down in the shade of the sun
To look for some better days
A better day had not yet dawned
Tried to cross where the water was wide
Thought I saw Eden across on the other side

Oh Lord
Lord don't you hear me
Oh Lord
Lord can't you hear me

Oh Lord
Lord don't you hear me

I stood down in the shade of the sun
To look for my woman
My woman she was gone
Kept a hammering away at the gate
I kept a knocking but I was far too late

Woman
Woman don't you hear me
Woman
Woman don't you hear me

I stood down in the shade of the sun
