  • Lyrics
  • It's a hard road but it fits your shoes
    Son of rhythm, brother of the blues
    The sound of darkness, the pull of the oak
    Everything is broken and painted in smoke

    But there's a light on Sunday, a new design
    The sound of the whistle, those radio wires
    Love in your future, I'll wait for you there
    Put 50000 watts of a common prayer

    [Chorus]
    50000 watts of common prayer
    50000 watts of common prayer

    To be who we are and not who we were
    A sister to him, a brother to her
    We'll live like kings without any sin
    Redemption will come, just tune it all in

    But there's a light on Sunday, a new design
    The sound of the whistle, those radio wires
    Love in your future, I'll wait for you there
    Put 50000 watts of a common prayer

    50000 watts of common prayer
    50000 watts of common prayer

    My common prayer
    Your common prayer
    50000 watts of common prayerWriter/s: JOHN LEVENTHAL, ROSEANNE CASH
