Daddy put in his forty years
Got his gold watch and then they sent him home
I never knew what a struggle was like 'til I cried tears on his stone
He was just a cog in their wheel lived 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 it cost a couple thousand bucks
She's got a beautiful smile but it'll be awhile on my new used pickup 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
Now 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 this common man
