Lyrics
Joy is at the end of hoping
Happiness is there some days
Jesus told me I'm a s___eman
And I believe in every word he says

Sorrow can keep you crying
Tomorrow I may be dying
Can I borrow some of your trying willful way
Baby, you won't believe me when I tell you
I want to hear what you have to say
It's just as important to me
As the rising of the sun each day

Another stage
Play I'm in a cage
Say, won't you tell me why you're in a rage

Lovely blond lady in a loose dress
Gave me joy when she said to me
I don't have to leave right now
'Cause I'm telling you I am free
Tellin' me she is free
Tellin' me baby, tellin' me she is free
Tellin' me baby, tellin' me she is free

From her mother
See
She's another
Be
Like no other

Put your bag and baggage in your head now
Walk about salt and land
When you find what you're looking for
Come back to this lonely man

Joy is at the end of hoping
Happiness is there some days
Jesus told me I'm a s___eman
And I believe in every word he says
I believe in every word he says, yeah
I believe in every word, believe in every word he says
I believe in every word, believe in every word he says
I believe in every word, believe in every word he says
