PEACE OF HEART

By John D. Loudermilk
1968 Acuff-Rose Publ. Inc.

Th' crowds are throwin' sticks and stones
Burning cars and Jewish homes
It's gettin' hard to get a loan
Without a banker friend you've known
And frankly speakin', time has shown
That what'cha reap you must have sown
So don't look lonely and alone and blue

Th' pastor's laid his Bible down
And joined th' movement underground
While the whole world sits around
We watch the ship of state go down
Watch the dollar slowly drown
Two tomes up an' three times down
And no one says "Well, I'll be damned" but me

But that doesn't matter anymore
Like it used to do
'Cause I've found peace of heart
Here with you

Th' courts have told us where we're at
We're not the same old American cat
Th' upper crust and the bottom fat
An' th' guy who split from where he's at
Came over here alone and flat
And worked like hell at the laundrymat
And now he owns a laundrymat or two

But that doesn't matter anymore
Like it used to do
'Cause I've found peace of heart
Here with you
'Cause I've found peace of heart
Here with you
