Weighted Down Blues (Rachel Jackson, Lafayette LA)


"Weighted Down Blues"

Who's that face outside my window,
Thought that you was dead and gone.
Why's your face outside my window,
I thought that you was dead and gone.
Yeah I thought I'd left you back there,
                                    but I
Feel you hangin' on.


Seen so many folks slide under,
Seen 'em slip on further away.
Watched too many folks slide under
Yes I watched them all slip away.
By the time I saw them slippin',
                        they done
Too far in to save.

Well my steps sometimes grow heavy,
Pavement crumbles 'neath my feet.
Yes my steps grow oh so heavy,
Pavement crumbles 'neath my feet.
Its the weight of all them people
                        I still
Carry on with me.

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
