All the People
(c) 2006 RedHawkins.com

Oh in my heart - I hold the people
In my heart - yeah every day
In my heart - I hold the people
In my heart - oh every day

You know my people - yeah we have suffered
But you know - we’re here to stay
All those troubles - made us a’tougher
Don’t you know - we’re here to stay

Oh in my heart - I hold the people
In my heart - yeah every day
Oh in my heart - I hold the people
In my heart - oh every day

When my m------em’ry’s been forgotten
Won’t be long - gonna slip away
Oh-oh death - can stop a’plottin’
I ain ‘t nee--ding one more day

I stood tall - when I was a’stronger
Now there’s no---thing - more to save
I won’t a’ta---rry - here much longer
Please prepa---re me a’for my grave

Oh in my heart - I hold the people
In my heart - yeah every day
In my heart - I hold the people
In my heart - yeah every day

No don’t go te----ll - no one about me
I ain’t here - to catch no fame
Cannot buy - no satisfaction
Got to find it - all the same

I give my thanks - to Old Ralph a’Stanley
For he sangs - right from his soul
Ain’t no li-v-in’ - up in the mountains
So you ca----rry them - when you go.

Oh in my heart - I hold the people
In my heart - yeah every day
In my heart - I hold the people
In my heart - every day

Yeah every day!
