Lord I Pray By: Nick White


1st verse:
I was in a learning hole - with no ladder, line, or pole
So I thought to myself for a while
Back to the days - of your baby sitting stays
And all of the ways you made me smile

2nd verse:
And if tomorrow came - and brought with it the rain
And washed your soul away to heaven
I know I'd cry - and I'd be sad
But I'd always have the times we had together

Chorus:
And Lord I pray - That one of these days
I could show someone the love that you always gave
And I could share the things I know - To help someone grow
And live each and every day like the world was mine to change

Verse 3:
Well your twenty two blows - Coffee cans full of holes
And fish hooks don't get baited on their own
There were mowers with no blades - and hats made for shade
And driving next to you on old dirt roads

Chorus:
And lord I pray - That one of these days
I could show someone the love that you always gave
And I could share the things I know - To help someone grow
And live each and every day like the world was mine to change

Bridge:
When it's your time to go - I'll be thankful to have known
Such a wise and loving soul as you are
And when I grow old - And my grey no longer shows
I'll pray I've meant as much to some as you have meant to us all

Chorus:
And lord I pray - That one of these days
I could show someone the love that you always gave
And i could share the things I know - To help someone grow
And live each and every day like the world was mine to change
Like the world was mine to change
