it ain’t long for the day lyrics – dave sharp

hey jessie, where are you tonight?
heard about a thing that’s driving you wild
looks like the big wheel is here to stay
how come it’s going down this way?
heard about a horse, all the king’s men
been dragging you down each street again
sure getting tough to believe anything you say
how come it’s going down this way?
chorus:
it ain’t long for the day
it ain’t long for the day
it ain’t long
it ain’t long
it ain’t long for the day
heard about a barricade all over the town
heard about a place on temple mount
you’re breaking a promise at the break of day
how come it’s going down this way?
heard about a deal between man and god
heard about what is, and what is not
sure is a shame the things people say
how come it’s going down this way?
chorus
it ain’t long
heard about a way to get out of this
talk about a dual/duel what is yours, what is his
does anybody remember was it straight
how come it’s going down this way?
chorus
