Common One

This song is by Calvin Russell and appears on the album Sam (1999).

This is a song for the common one
Who do everything that's ever been done
Whose hands built the cities
This is a song for you
This is a song for my brothers and friends
It's been said before but I'll say it again
We fight the same battle that no one can win
This is a song for you.
I sing for the hungry
The tired and the torn
For the ones with no chance
From the day they were born
I sing to the battered
The beaten and the worn
This is a song for you.
This is a song for the rank and the file
Who take the first step
Who go to the last mile
From the great Mississippi
To the river called Nile
This is a song for you.
I sing to the honest
To the upright and tall
To the ones who are still fighting
In spite of it all
Who will pick up the pieces
After the fall
This is a song for you.
