Jim Capaldi - Big Thirst lyrics

Capaldi-Mason

Everybody's standing in a lake, crying out for the rain
Hoping for a miracle to drive away the pain
And some are heavy with a thirst which burns their very soul
For no one sees direction when they're standing in a hole.

Big thirst on my head, oh Lord
Big thirst in my mouth
But I can see those green fields
Stretchin' to the South.

Some are walking in their graves, knowing it's no use
Beaten up for ignorance and treated with abuse
Oh God, I need your hand so bad, help me to get through
'Cause I know there's a place for me standing next to you.

Big thirst on my head, oh Lord
Big thirst in my mouth
I can see those green fields
Stretchin' to the South.

Everybody's looking up at the sky, waiting for a sign
Blind men leading blind men who're dragging on a line
People shooting at the sun, trying hard not to see
All the trouble in this world that's caused by you and me.

Big thirst on my head, oh Lord
Big thirst in my mouth
I can see those green fields
Stretchin' to the South.

Oh big thirst on my head, Lord
Big thirst in my mouth
I can see those green fields
Stretchin' to the South.
