Rock Me on the Water

This song has been covered by Kathy Mattea under the title "Rock Me on the Water".
Oh people, look around you
The signs are everywhere
You've left it for somebody other than you
To be the one to care

You're lost inside your houses
There's no time to find you now
While your walls are burning
And your towers are turning
I'm gonna leave you here
And try to get down to the sea somehow

The road is filled with homeless souls
Every woman, child and man
Who have no idea where they will go
But they'll help you if they can

Now everyone must have some thought
That's gonna pull them through somehow
While the fires are raging hotter and hotter
But the sisters of the sun are gonna
Rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water
Sister, will you soothe my fevered brow
Rock me on the water
I'll get down to the sea somehow
I'll get down to the sea somehow

Oh people, look among you
It's there your hope must lie
There's a seabird above you gliding in one place
Like Jesus in the sky

We all must do the best we can
And then hang on to that Gospel plow
When my life is over
Gonna stand before the Father
But the sisters of the sun are gonna
Rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water
Sister, will you soothe my fevered brow
Yeah, rock me on the water
Maybe I'll remember, maybe I'll remember how

Rock me on the water
The wind is with me now
So rock me on the water
I'll get down to the sea somehow
I'll get down to the sea somehow

Rock me on the water
Rock me now
Rock me on the water
Rock me now
