Little Sadie Adrienne Young - Walls of Jericho



Walls of Jericho

Adrieenne Young


Lookin? much older

With dust on your shoulder

Well you crashed in this mornin?

Wearin? only your pride

Highways and freight trains

Drivers with no names

Well you played such a god game it was easy to ride


With a Poor Man?s scheme and

Rich Man?s dream

You ran for your life

Over El Rio into Laredo it was do or die

The stars hung bright on the other side


Well I offered a cold beer

And I said you could stay here

I swallowed my own fear

'cause I knew what was right

We spoke in a language that was

Here before Cambridge

Colored bright terracotta and aquamarine


With a Poor Boy?s Dream and a

Rich man?s scheme

You sacrificed the warmth of your wife?s hand

Your children and homeland for a roll lof dice

A bitter slice of American Pie


Mighty walls of Jericho

Toppled by the sound of tiny feet

Trumpets sound and we will know

Just who?s sitting in the driver?s seat

Oh these walls are comin? down

Getting back to the ground

And there?ll be victory

In the sound of their defeat


Well you slept when the dawn came

So I undid the latch chain I walked

Down to the riverbank and thought about life

Just when did this happen

Was it always the fashion

Playin? just to win disregarding the price


Such a Rich Man?s scheme using

Poor Boy?s dreams

To fight the fight

How far will we go pretending we don?t know what is wrong or right

The stars hang bright on the other side


Mighty walls of Jericho

Toppled by the sound of tiny feet

Trumpets sound and we will know

Just who?s sitting in the driver?s seat

Oh these walls are comin? down

Getting back to the ground

And there?ll be victory

In the sound of their defeat
