The Ozark Mountain Daredevils – It's How You Think lyrics


There are people livin' in poverty

Their lives are just misery

Can't get enough relief

There are children needing some food to eat

Shoes on their little feet

Lookin' to you and me

Why do we look away

Think it will go away today

I think it's only fair

That we should all be asked to share


There are men among us who rule our land

And though they're just fools in bands

Hold us all in their hands

There are people preaching their gods to me

Saying that I can't see

Yet they give me books to read

They say more's wrong than right

Some say more dark that light

I say it's how you think

That makes you swim or sink


Lyrics are copyright 1976, Larry Lee
