A Little Bit Of Mercy (Herring Caroline)

Time goes by so quickly now On this freight train line Through my hometown There are days I wait for night to come When I fall asleep just to wake again Oh to walk beside an honorable man Honey, sometimes I just do the best that I can And you show me a little bit of mercy Of mercy, of mercy More than a little bit of mercy Striving for that golden crown Will He say well done When the trumpet sounds Standing where our fathers stood We learn their ways to make them good But where is the heart in an honorable man Honey, sometimes you just do the best that you can And I show you a little bit of mercy Of mercy, of mercy More than a little bit of mercy Underneath this house of stones A whole wide world beckons us on To leave behind the walls and doors Windows, ceilings and floors Let us breathe in mountains Breathe out sun For ourselves And this race we run If you'll show me a little bit of mercy Of mercy, of mercy More than a little bit of mercy And I'll show you a little bit of mercy Of mercy, of mercy More than a little bit of mercy
