Redemption Day Lyrics - Johnny Cash

Review The Song (1)



(originally by Sheryl Crow)
I've wept for those who suffer long
But how I weep for those who've gone
Into rooms of grief and questioned wrong
But keep on killing

It's in the soul to feel such things
But weak to watch without speaking
Oh what mercy sadness brings
If God be willing

There is a train that's heading straight
To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate
And on the way, child and man,
And woman wait, watch and wait
For redemption day

Fire rages in the streets
And swallows everything it meets
sponsored links
It's just an image often seen
On television
Come leaders, come you men of great
Let us hear you pontificate
Your many virtues laid to waste
And we aren't listening

There is a train that's heading straight
To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate
And on the way, child and man,
And woman wait, watch and wait
For redemption day

What do you have for us today?
Throw us a bone but save the plate
On why we waited til so late
Was there no oil to excavate
No riches in trade for the fate
Of every person who died in hate
Throw us a bone, you men of great

There is a train that's heading straight
To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate
And on the way, child and man,
And woman wait, watch and wait
For redemption day

It's buried in the countryside
It's exploding in the shells at night
It's everywhere a baby cries
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

This Song | Reviewer: Chris M | 10/19/11

I've not liked country music because of the twee connotations it has -D.I.V.O.R.C.E., Blanket on the Ground and the like - but this song by Johnny Cash is pure prophecy, especially in today's socio-economic climate! He was a Christian, and saw the world through the lens of the Bible, when he wrote it, and the world was in a sorry state even then - and it has gotten worse, you can't deny it, and the song reflects the veracity of Biblical Truths - and Prophecy! Don't just dismiss the words- think about it, you intelligent people!
