​I'm Gonna Write A Song

This song is by Jerry Reed and appears on the album Lord, Mr. Ford (1973).

Folks sit around with their face in a frown and they gape at the way things they are
They're happy to receive but they hardly ever want to give
Well neighbor I'm so tired of complaining so in the time remaining
I'm gonna do my best to make the world a better place to live

Yes I'm gonna write a song that the whole wide world can sing
It's gonna be about sunshine and praise every living thing
It's gonna be about love the only thing the world needs a lot more of
Well I'm gonna write a song that the whole wide world can sing
Pick it son

(Guitar)
Well our fourfathers had only faith in God and they willed to make the nation strong
So the old time religion could help 'em to find a better way
Well we need a liitle more soul saving and a whole lot more flag waving
And there ain't no better time for us to start than today
Singing children

Well now I'm gonna write a song that the whole wide world can sing...
