Mother’s Crying

Mother she’s crying, she ain’t the only one,
Mother she’s crying, she ain’t the only one,
They’ve got blood on their hands,
Look what the children done.

There’s pain in their hearts, and there’s trouble in the air,
There’s pain in their hearts, and there’s trouble in the air,
People are suffering, nobody seems to care.

Dark clouds are rolling, and the water’s running black,
Dark clouds are rolling, and the water’s running black,
It’s the same old story, from New Orleans to Iraq.

We seek salvation, that sweet salvation,
Got to find,
Got to find,
Got to find,
We got to find a way,

We seek salvation, that sweet salvation,
Got to find,
Got to find,
Got to find,
We got to find a way,

Got to find that light, turn the night into the day.
