Phil Vassar Prayer Of A Common Man


Daddy put in his 40 years
Got his gold watch then they sent him home
I never knew what his struggle was like
'Til I cried tears on his stone
He was just a cog in their wheel
Live and died on the layaway plan
But Lord, hear the prayer of a common man

Hallelujah, is anybody up there
Hallelujah, does anybody care
Life takes its toll on the heart and soul
But I'm doing the best I can
But Lord, hear the prayer of a common man

My little girl needed braces, man
And it costs a couple thousand bucks
She's got a beautiful smile
But it'll be a while
On my new, used pick-up truck
This house of cards I built is mortgaged to the hilt
And it's sinking in the sand
Now Lord, hear the prayer of a common man

Hallelujah, is anybody up there
Hallelujah, does anybody care
Life takes its toll on the heart and soul
But I'm doing the best I can
But Lord, hear the prayer of a common man

I'm not looking for charity
I just need some clarity
I've got people counting on me
And I'm tired, that's all
And I'm up against the wall
Lord, hear me when I call

Hallelujah, I know you're up there
Hallelujah, I know you care
Life takes its toll on the heart and soul
But I'm doing the best I can
Oh Lord, hear the prayer of a common man
Lord, hear the prayer of a common man
