Sit Down Young Stranger

I'm standin' in the doorway

My head bowed in my hands

Not knowin' where to sit

Not knowin' where to stand

My father looms above me

For him there is no rest

My mother's arms enfold me

And hold me to her breast

They say you been out wandrin'

They say you travelled far

Sit down young stranger

And tell us who you are

The room has all gone misty,

my thoughts are all in spin

Sit down young stranger

and tell us where you been

I've been up to the mountain

I've walked down by the sea

I never questioned no one

And no one questioned me

My love was given freely

And oftimes was returned

I never came to borrow

I only came to learn

Sometimes it would get lonely

But it taught me how to cry

And laughter came too easy

For life to pass me by

I never had a dollar

That I didn't earn with pride

Cause I had a million daydreams

To keep me satisfied

And will you gather daydreams

Or will you gather wealth

How can you find your fortune

When you cannot find yourself

My mother's eyes grow misty

There's a tremblin' in her hand

Sit down young stranger

I do not understand

Now will you try to tell us

You been too long at school

That knowledge is not needed

That power does not rule

That war is not the answer

That young men should not die

Sit down young stranger

I wait for your reply

The answer is not easy

For souls are not reborn

To wear the crown of peace

You must wear the crown of thorns

If Jesus had a reason

I'm sure he would not tell

We treated him so badly

How could he wish us well

The parlor now is empty

There's nothin' left to say

My father has departed

My mother's gone to pray

There's rockets in the meadows

And ships out on the sea

The answer's in the forest

Carved upon a tree

John loves Mary

Does anyone love me
