Broken Promise In The Promised Land

Broken Promise In The Promised Land

Chuck RitenouR


Chorus:

Broken promise in the promised land, brother won't you reach out your hand

If you could just open your heart, well that would be a good start

living just a paycheck away, fall down and they'll take it away

broken home, broken heart, broken man, broken promise in the promised land

Verse 1:

From the mountains to the valleys, big cities and small towns

I wonder how it got this far wonder how the system broke down.

they sleep in boxes back in the alleys, they'd work all day for a little food

someone said, they brought it on themselves and that they were just no good.

Chorus:

Broken promise in the promised land, brother won't you reach out your hand

If you could just open your heart, well that would be a good start

living just a paycheck away, fall down and they'll take it away

broken home, broken heart, broken man, broken promise in the promised land

Verse 2:

there's no money to feed the poor, but trillions to bail out the banks

there's a storm coming down the road, thousands joining the ranks

how long can you keep them down, show them the back of your hand

til they rise up against the tide and you make your final stand.

Chorus:

Broken promise in the promised land, brother won't you reach out your hand

If you could just open your heart, well that would be a good start

living just a paycheck away, fall down and they'll take it away

broken home, broken heart, broken man, broken promise in the promised land
