My father was a working man
He stood behind a counter
He bought himself a business
Took a holiday for Christmas
But one day
One day
One day
One day
Rest for the weary ones
Now my mother stood beside him
But if you look at some old photograph
I hope there was some laughter
Now all I can say is I pray to God
After all those years

There's love for the lonely
They walk in the sun
Rest for the weary

On another winding road
I'm trying to pull some kind of load
Sometimes I can't catch my breath
And man it scares me half to death

There's love for the lonely
We walk in the sun
Rest for the weary
