Lyrics

Lay me down
there's a lot of us been pushed around
red or yellow, black or white and brown
with a tear of their own
oh, can't you see
while you're picking on society
that believes on your family tree
calling you to come home
Chorus:
you're the keeper of the castle
so be a father to your children
a provider of all their daily needs
like a sovereign lord protector
be their best friend, please direct them
and they'll do well to follow where you lead
Oh, in your head
you don't believe what the good book says
you're gonna strike out [?] instead
cause the world's been unkind
but through thick and thin
whatever shape your heart is in
you only have one next of kin
better keep 'em in mind
Chorus:
you're the keeper of the castle
so be a good man to your lady
the creator of the sunshine in her day
in the garden that you seeded
be a friend when a friend is needed
you won't have to look the other way
Lay me down
there's a lot of us been pushed around
red or yellow, black or white and brown
with a tear of their own
oh, can't you see
while you're picking on society
that believes your family tree
a beggin' you to come on home
Lay me down
there's a lot of us been pushed around
red or yellow, black or white and brown
with a tear of their own
in your head
you don't believe what the good book says (fade)
