Laura Nyro Brown Earth Lyrics

Last updated: 05/23/2010 11:00:00 AM

Morning, come to the windows of the street, selling red watermelon, five cents a piece.
Merry boat on the river, freedom. Fresh dreams to deliver, freedom.
Over and over and over, I call out your name.

God standing on the brown earth. ‘Get up,’ Mama hollers.
Shooflies in the doorway, white dove’s gonna come today, white dove’s gonna come today.
Oh, what a morning, I feel so good. Oh, what a morning of brotherhood.

Hold me by the light. Kittens run the neighborhood through. Ragamuffin boys.
All the world is new by the light of day.
Give with your heart and love will come to you.
Kids come in all shapes and colors to the cool morning dew.

Merry boat on the river, freedom. Fresh dreams to deliver, freedom.
Over and over and over and over and over and over.
God standing on the brown earth. Lovelight in the morning.
Shooflies in the doorway, white dove’s gonna come today, white dove’s gonna come today…
