Rocky Ground

Album: Wrecking Ball (2012)
  • (I'm a soldier!)
    (I'm a soldier!)
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground

    Rise up shepherd, rise up
    Your flock has roamed far from the hills
    The stars have faded, the sky is still
    The angels are shouting ,Glory Hallelujah

    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground

    Forty days and nights of rain have washed this land
    Jesus said the money changers in this temple will not stand
    Find your flock, get them to higher ground
    Flood waters rising and we're Caanan bound

    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    (I'm a soldier!)

    Tend to your flock or they will stray
    We'll be called for our service come Judgment Day
    Before we cross that river wide
    Blood on our hands will come back on us twice

    (I'm a soldier!)

    Rise up shepherd, rise up
    Your flock has roamed far from the hills
    Stars have faded, the sky is still
    Sun's in the heavens and a new day's rising

    You use your muscle and your mind and you pray your best
    That your best is good enough, the Lord will do the rest
    You raise your children and you teach 'them to walk straight and sure
    You pray that hard times, hard times, come no more
    You try to sleep, you toss and turn, the bottom's dropping out
    Where you once had faith now there's only doubt
    You pray for guidance, only silence now meets your prayers
    The morning breaks, you awake but no one's there

    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    There's a new day coming
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    (I'm a soldier!)
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    There's a new day coming
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    (I'm a soldier!)
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    There's a new day coming
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    (I'm a soldier!)
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    There's a new day coming
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground

    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground Writer/s: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
