Heart Of A Heartless World

I don’t recognize this world; it’s so fast and cold and hard
I don’t hear music that I love comin’ cross the yard
I’ve been up and I’ve been down from the sky to the ground
Lookin’ for the heart of a heartless world.

I come from this car town, we’ve been up but now we’re down
It’s gettin hard to hang around; in for a penny or a pound
I’ve been up and I’ve been down from the sky to the ground
Lookin’ for the heart of a heartless world.

Looked from here to Blacksburg Virginia
From Mississippi clear to Denver
This world she ain’t very fair
True love is very rare
I think there’s something goin’ on over there.

I said farewell to my Mama, said goodbye to my Dad
We’re really on our own now; guess I’ll do the best I can.
I’ve been up and I’ve been down from the sky to the ground
Lookin’ for the heart of a heartless world.
