Father I Know Why
by Blue Highway



Momma why do I have to sleep on the ground?
a pillow of straw and the dampness all around
Why do other kids mock me and put me down,
Why do the shepherds bring me gifts from miles around?
Momma why do I have to sleep on the ground?

Daddy why do I have to work so hard in wood?
I'd like to change the world and some people say I could
I'd heal all the sick and make the blind to see
and make the dumb to speak
Daddy why do I have to work so hard in wood?

Wise men all say I'm wise beyond my years
I see angels in my dreams and they tell me why I'm here

Father I know why I have to carry the cross
'cause it's the only way I can save the world from loss
I'll carry your message through the best I can
But it seems the stones are thrown at me by every man
Father I know why I have to carry the cross
