Barrel House

Lyrics

Shifting the chair on the porch

For a better position to enjoy the warmth

Of the sun

To keep warm

 

And working the needle and twine

Lost in the furthest recess of the mind

It is calm

There is peace

A cat on his lap and a dog at her feet

 

But oh

The heart of a man

The secrets they bury within

And oh

The causes that force his poor hand

Lead to be misled

At those deceiving hand

 

And it's a night among easily described

Misunderstanding our thoughts by and by

I'm barely here

If even at all

 

A fear of the misunderstood

Invites the violence right in chasing off all the good

We have brought

All on ourselves

Let it straight by the words of somebody else

 

And oh

The life of a man

His head above the water and pushed under again

And oh

I've seen it one too many times

It's a test of the spirit versus

The health of the mind

 

Oh...

Bring relief to him now

And the people he loves

Oh...

I know the feeling's the feeling but

Not what it's called

Oh...

 

Oh

The will of a man

And all his well meaning intent

And oh

The thought of it all

As far as we've come we're still further to go

 

Oh...

All the years we lost

They don't mean nothing at all

Oh...

Lifting the spirit impression of a son

Oh...

Bring some peace to his heart and a wondering thought

Bring some peace to this world and keep passin' it on
