    Oh father my bones are tired;
    I can't get much sleep ;
    I cried all through the night ;
    Tossed and turn until the morning light
    I have been the eye's that man could see ;
    I have been his feet that he may lead ;
    I have been the shoulder that man may lean .


    Lord oh Lord only you know the trouble I have seen;
    Take my soul lord and purify my heart;
    Take my hands and baptize my love;
    Take my words that it may be the insight to love,
    Oh lord I have been the belly of the beast for all man cause;
    The nights are getting darker and the days are short;
    I have felt the pain of civilization.


    I continue to carry the scars;
    Rise me my father that I may regain my strength;
    “Without you lord”, I am nothing and my bones are tired
    I am worried and I can't go on much longer,
    I stand with the torch, my spirit is no longer willing.
    My sons no longer cry for me,
    I walk alone through the dark,
    “Without you lord,” I could know longer carry the torch.
