ROLL AWAY THE STONE

Lyrics by: Gary Barlough

Music by: Robert Balow, Gary Barlough,

Moon Otter Wallace, Thomas Strickfaden II

——————————————————————–

I went down to the bank today
For a little change
Ten rupees had my name engraved
In words from other days
I saw my face
Without a trace
Of the one I have known
Hands of clay
In silence played
A tune between the tones
Rest your fingers
Give it birth
Let a little bit fall on down to Earth
Pick up the moon
Pick up the sun
Give it all out to everyone
Roll away the stone
Roll away all the pain
Let your heart be open wide
And leave the past behind
I went down to the hotel man
It was half past nine
He said he had a room to rent
With walls that knew no time
In forty days and forty nights
You will understand
As seasons change a soldier’s heart
From boulders into sand
Rest your fingers
Give it birth
Let a little bit fall on down to Earth
Pick up the moon
Pick up the sun
Give it all out to everyone
Roll away the stone
Roll away all the pain
Let your heart be your guide
And leave the past behind
I went down to the riverbed
Water running dry
A thousand faces greeted me
Pointing to the sky
Each dancing to
A perfect tune
No other ever hears
The purest spring
Blast from the ground
And shattered every fear
Gold’s in the river
And the water’s deep
Walking in the garden
Of the Wishing Tree
Sit down awhile
Think I’ll sit down a while
Looking through the eyes
Of a newborn child
Roll away the stone
Roll away all the tears
Let your heart be your guide
Leave the past behind…
