Lyrics

ON EVEN GROUND

Some guys are born with a silver spoon all stuck up in their face
Don't think they work a hard day all their lives
They always got a lot of money, that means friends and they have plenty
Well educated kids, sophisticated wives

Now on the other side of that coin is the way that I was raised
I saw my daddy work his life away
For three small rooms above the hardware store, just enough and nothing more
You can't dream up tomorrow, when you're knee deep in today

Guess we'll have to wait for Heaven to stand on even ground
The good lord said we're born equal, well that ain't what I've found
Some's way more equal than the others and if you take a look around
You'll see we have to wait for Heaven to stand on even ground

When we're called up on that judgement day without our earthly goods
Each lookin' like the other in His eyes
What will our maker have to say, who will the angels turn away
Will they open up those pearly gates to those of us who tried

Guess we'll have to wait for Heaven to stand on even ground
The good lord said we're born equal, well that ain't what I've found
Some's way more equal than the others and if you take a look around
You'll see we have to wait for Heaven to stand on even ground

They say His eye is on the sparrow, so I know He watches me
Well He must be lookin' the other way or He would surely see

That we'll have to wait for Heaven to stand on even ground
The good lord said we're born equal, well that ain't what I've found
Some's way more equal than the others and if you take a look around
You'll see we have to wait for Heaven to stand on even ground

Yeah, guess we'll have to wait for Heaven
To stand on even ground
