WROTE A SONG FOR EVERYONE


Met myself a comin' county welfare line
I was feelin' strung out, hung out on the line
Saw myself a goin' down to war in June.
All I want, all I want is to write myself a tune.
Wrote a song for ev'ryone, wrote a song for truth.
Wrote a song for ev'ryone and I couldn't even talk to you.

Got myself arrested, wound me up in jail
Richmond 'bout to blow up, communication failed
If you see the answer, now's the time to say
All I want, all I want is to get you down and pray.
Wrote a song for ev'ryone, wrote a song for truth.
Wrote a song for ev'ryone and I couldn't even talk to you.

Saw the people standin' thousend years in chains
Somebody said it's different now, but look it's just the same
Pharaohs spin the message, 'round and 'round the truth
They could have saved a million people, how can I tell you?
Wrote a song for ev'ryone, wrote a song for truth.
Wrote a song for ev'ryone and I couldn't even talk to you.
