John Kay – Sing With The Children lyrics

Words and Music by Ron Davies

I got something hard on my mind
I got something hard against my mind
I got a gold mine down in my pocket
And you can have all that you can find
I've got some crazy business on my mind
I need something a little more just to raise my stake
I need something more to raise my stake 'cause she's more than
Any man can ever hope to take
Something more to keep it straight
Goin' down to the corner and find myself a bar
I'm goin' down to the corner I'm gonna lean up against a bar
Gonna sing with the children 'bout the way things really are
Goin' down to the river down to the water wide
Goin' down to the river I'm gonna lay down with my guitar
Gonna sing with the children 'bout the way things really are
