Lookin' After

 

Around the clock around my bed

Around the knockin' in my head

A rockin' chair right by my side

Another dawnin' vic'try light

 

Blood sticks to me thru and thru

Breathin' thru a narrow passage

A vessel strong for sweet intentions

Fills my arms with ev'ry answer

 

            Surely God tends to the matter

            Knowin' who is lookin' after

 

I am learnin' I am cryin'

Supper's on the table waitin'

I am hungry I am tryin'

Stop my hurtin' no more hate

 

            Surely God tends to the matter

            Knowin' who is lookin' after

 

Lift me up o drink o' water

Tote me on your hip grandmother

 

(Chorus)

 

Around the clock around my bed

Around the knockin' in my head

 

(Chorus)

 

Who is lookin' after...
