Troubled Land Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, theres a pain in my side that I keep traveling on
Bring peace to this troubled land
Its dark out here, I cant read those signs
Bring peace to the troubled land

Hurricane on the horizon
Judgment getting closer all the time
I cant find tomorrow
Bring peace to this troubled land

Well, theres two men a walking down the same dirty road
Bring peace to this troubled land
They stand shoulder to shoulder carrying the same heavy load
Bring peace to this troubled land

One mans eyes are full of sorrow
The other mans belly full of unbearable pain
They keep getting closer
Bring peace to this troubled land

I got many screaming children, ten million rows to hoe
Bring peace to this troubled land
Deader than a hammer but I cant let go
Bring peace to this troubled land

The eyes of heaven are upon you
So is the soul from down below
Theyll cut off your fingers
To bring peace to this troubled land

Well, you can stand up and holler, you can lay down and die
Bring peace to this troubled land
We can turn up our collars and never even try
To bring peace to this troubled land

Beware of those who want to harm you
And drag you down to a lower game
Just know the truth is coming
To bring peace to this troubled land

I got a pain in my side but I keep traveling on
