Listen to the rhythm  Listen to the beat
It has a cold wind blowing 
Up through the street 
Soul crying out
 People crying out

In through the valleys 
In through the streets 
Feel the whole world moving  Underneath our feet
Something's going on
I said what is going wrong

I feel them coming 
So close behind
 Sister says, we're next in line
The man he says, that's OK 
And the Government says you're gonna pay, pay, pay
And you pay
 Still you pay

It's just a soul crying out
It's just the people crying out
It's the land crying out
And I can hear you crying out

And I say, I don't know
 Maybe I don't care
What I know is
I gotta get out of here
And I'm going  Going any day
Some sweet day
Some sweet day
I gotta find a way

I can hear the lovers, whisper in the street 
See a crowd has gathered underneath the heat
I hear what they say
But I don't believe what they say

I see the woman, with tears in her eyes
I hear the baby, calling in the night  Something on the bed, was it something she said
Hell this is not right 
What goes on through the night 

I hear her coming, all in my mind
 Sweet common love, so hard to find
 Someone said, man that's sa
And the people walk by, cos they're so blind 

And you pay
 Still you pay

It's just a soul crying out
Just the people crying out
It's the earth crying out
And I can hear you crying out
And I can feel you crying out

And I say, I don't know
 Maybe I don't care
All I know is, I gotta get out of here
And I'm going, going any way
Do you know, some place to go
I'm getting out of here

 Where will I find some peace of mind
I'm getting out of here

I come walking to you
I come singing to you
Some sweet day
I'm gonna walk away
I'm gonna walk away

It's just the soul crying out
It's just the land crying out
It's just the children crying out
All the babies crying out

Any way, some sweet day
I'm gonna walk away
Turn away

It's just the soul crying out
It's just the land crying out

I wanna hear
I want you here
Some sweet day

Just a soul crying out
Of a land crying out anyway 
When you say
Some sweet day...
