still got a prayer lyrics – billy falcon

as my daddy lay there on omaha beach
it didn’t look good for my brothers and me
there were twenty-four hours on that longest day
now ten thousand crosses, scar the beach where they lay

under machine gun fire
on that blood day called d
back home a young girl was praying
god bring him home for me

oh, when you reach out and n*body’s there
you scream and shout, no one seems to care
when you think you’ve got nothing left to hold on to

when you cry out and n*body hears
just fear and doubt, all you’ve left is tears
when you think you’ve got nothing left to hold on to

you’ve still got a prayer, you’ve still got a prayer
you’ve still got a prayer

when my mother was born on that south brooklyn street
it didn’t look good for my brothers and me
born in the back of a store that sold cigars and candy
cold she lay crying and, and that’s the way it would be

oh, when you reach out and n*body’s there
you scream and shout, no one seems to care
when you think you’ve got nothing left to hold on to

when you cry out and n*body hears
just fear and doubt, all you’ve left is tears
when you think you’ve got nothing left to hold on to

you’ve still got a prayer, you’ve still got a prayer
you’ve still got a prayer, you’ve still got a prayer
you’ve still got a prayer

she took her last breath and i kissed her goodbye
walked down that hospital hall trying so hard not to cry
as he took his last breath on calvary’s tree
it didn’t look good, no there wasn’t much hope
for my brothers and me

oh, when you reach out and n*body’s there
you scream and shout, no one seems to care
when you think you’ve got nothing left to hold on to

when you cry out and n*body hears
just fear and doubt, all you’ve left is tears
when you think you’ve got nothing left to hold on to

you’ve still got a prayer, you’ve still got a prayer
you’ve still got a prayer, you’ve still got a prayer
you’ve still got a prayer, you’ve still got a prayer

you’ve still got a prayer, you’ve still got a prayer
you’ve still got a prayer, you’ve still got a prayer
you’ve still got a prayer
