By Tom Petty

Lord please watch over
All these lost children
Born to chase the hurricane
Please shine some light down
On those who wander
Filled with hunger and pain
Please raise the wind
For all those out sailing
On an ocean alone
Lord shine a light on
All these lost children
Far away from their home

Lord keep an eye on
All these lost children
Swept away in the wind
Please shine some light down
On all those travelin'
