Sometimes in the face of adversity we must "Leave The Blues Behind" and do our best.


You Gotta Leave the Blues Behind

Verse 1:

Daddy needs a job - He's about to give up tryin'
There's money's on the street - If you're not afraid of dyin'
Momma's in the kitchen - I hear her cry at night
Fear's her only friend- It just don't seem right


Sometimes it's hard to leave the blues behind

Verse 2:

Brother's gone to war - It's his ticket out
But who's he fighten for - A future full of doubt


Sometimes you can't leave the blues behind

You better have a dream - But dreams can be so cruel
When love is the key - The truth can set you free

Verse 3:

Now is the time - To reach deep inside
And find our common ground - And put away our foolish pride
So justice can roll like water -And truth becomes a mighty stream
Then our world can change - To let our freedom ring
