  • Hey Lord, take a look all around
    And I'd a find where my baby's gonna be
    Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
    'Cause she is far across the sea
    Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
    And make sure that she's gonna be alright
    And things are gonna be alright with me

    Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
    And make sure that all her dreams are sweet
    Said now, would ya guide her on the roads
    And make them softer for her feet
    Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
    And make sure that she's gonna be alright
    Until she's home and here with me

    Hey, Lord would ya look out for her tonight
    If she is sleepin' under the sky
    Said now, make sure the ground she's sleepin' on
    Is always warm and dry
    Um, don'tcha give her too much rain
    Try to keep her away from pain
    Because my baby hates to cry

    Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
    'Cause it gets rough along the way
    Said now, this song seems strange is just because
    I don't know how to pray
    Um, won'tcha give her peace of mind
    And if you ever find the time
    Won'tcha tell her I miss her everyday

    Hey Lord, take a look all around
    And I'd a-find where my baby's gonna be
    Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
    'Cause she is far across the sea
    Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
    And make sure that she's gonna be alright
    Until she's home and here with me
    With me Writer/s: BILLY JOEL
