Hillman-Parsons

There’s a man, a tall man, follows no one
Out in the storm, can he stay warm, all the things that he’s done.

Oh the city lights are such pretty lights
Get a move on, tell him it’s all right
Sing a song and say that it’s all right, say it’s all right.

There is a man, a crippled man, is he a soldier?
Can his new wife live out her life the way he told her?

Oh, I see the light, I see it burnin' bright
… Tell him it’s all right
Shake your fist and tell him it’s all right, say it’s all right.

Where you have been is not a sin, it’s where you’re goin'
Hurt anyone by what you’ve done and it starts showin'.

Oh but you can’t complain about the wind and the rain
You’re gonna gather in the churchyard just the same
Your water won’t ever wash away the stainy, if you remain.
