Mercy

(Original by Kurt Stevenson, Patrick Winningham, & Chris Boesel)

I got a feeling
of unrighteousness
bitter cold
hollow bitterness
down the road
I walk with loneliness
mercy will follow me I’m told

My sister sang
songs so sweet and sad
bout a man
who’s love I never had
there’s a train
bound for gillian?
mercy will follow me I’m told
mercy will you follow me
mercy will you follow me
till my final breath at last I take
mercy will you follow me
mercy will you follow me
Till the chains of this old world I finally break

Under this skin
there lies a heart of stone
It’s growing old
so very far, from home
but a heart of gold
I may someday own?
and mercy will follow me, I’m told
mercy will you follow me
mercy will you follow me
to my final breath at last I take
mercy will you follow me
mercy will you follow me
Till the chains of this old world I finally break
Till the chains of this old world I finally break
Till the chains of this old world I finally break
