​I'll Be Alright

This song is by Jess Klein and appears on the album Draw Them Near (2000).

Sunset has cast upon the alley
I've had no phone calls today
They're tall mountains
That keep you in that valley
And I miss you
But I'm not the type to pray
If I were through
I know what I'd say

I'll be all right
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
Oh I don't think I'll be calling you tonight
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
Or I'll sing this till the morning comes to light

The girls came to work down in the factories
Left all their lovers behind
Sent home pennies to buy more seed
And now I send you one of mine
Keeping busy sure makes me feel fine

I'll be all right
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
Oh I don't think I'll be calling you tonight
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
Or I'll sing this till the morning comes to light

Two blocks west on Harper is the lamplight
No one there has wisdom in their eyes
But when I'm singing hard I feel all right
It's a hard one
Pride

Some years from now I imagine
When we all see the past as today
You'll saddle up your horse and wagon
And come, look at how far I've strayed
You'll say, baby, you were always a city girl
Pretty, in a lonely kind of way

I'll be all right
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
Oh I don't think I'll be calling you tonight
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
Or I'll sing this till the morning comes to light
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
I'll be all right
Or I'll sing this till the morning comes to light
