Prayer Of A Common Man

Prayer Of A Common Man

Phil Vassar


[Chorus]

Daddy put in his forty years, got his gold watch, and then they sent him home.
I never knew what a struggle was like until I cried tears on his stone.
He was just a kinder-will lived and died on the layaway plan.
But Lord hear the prayer of a Common Man.

[Chorus]
Alleluia, is anybody up there?
Alleluia Does anybody care?
Life takes its toll on the heart and soul, but I'm doing the best I can.
Lord hear the prayer of a Common Man.

A little girl needed braces but it cost a couple thousand bucks.
She has a beautiful smile but it'll be awhile on my new/used pickup truck.
This house of cards I built is mortgaged to the hills and its sinking in the sand.
Lord hear the prayer of a Common Man.

I'm not looking for charity, I just need some clarity.
I've got people counting on me.
And I'm tired that's all
I'm up against the wall.
Lord hear me when I call.

[Chorus]

Lord hear the prayer of this Common Man.
