Lyrics:

A Blind Man Can See


Verse 1

I have a blind friend that lives in Hoboken
His eyes are shut tight but his heart is wide open
I stopped by for a visit on my way to a show
He was sitting in the dark with his radio
So I turned on the light and saw a tear on his face
I asked him what's wrong and he began to pace

Rise

He said, "There's people starving in the Sudan
And the church has lost more souls than it's found

Chorus

He, said the world's in a hurry to get nowhere
Everyone's worried about getting their share
They've lost sight of the fact that love is free
They're all overlooking what A Blind Man Can See
They're all overlooking what A Blind Man Can See

Verse 2

He tapped me with his cane and pulled out a dollar or two
And said give this to someone who needs it more than I do
Then he turned up the volume and started shaking his head
As the radio announcer broke in and said

Chorus

He, said the world's in a hurry to get nowhere
Everyone's worried about getting their share
They've lost sight of the fact that love is free
They're all overlooking what A Blind Man Can See

Bridge

That I wouldn't find God
In an ornate church
Not in stained glassed windows but in those tearstained eyes
Of a blind man
What a clever disguise
And he said:

Chorus

He, said the world's in a hurry to get nowhere
Everyone's worried about getting their share
They've lost sight of the fact that love is free
They're all overlooking what A Blind Man Can See

Tag

They've lost sight of the fact that love is free
They're all overlooking what A Blind Man Can See
They're all overlooking what A Blind Man Can See
