Holy Man Lyrics

8. Holy Man (4:42)
(originally by Deep Purple)

I called to Madonna
To give me a line
She said boy what have you done
You've been passing your time with a holy man
Talking about the moon and sun
And I can't tell the difference
Between the fool and wise
Show me a river to follow
Away from all these lies

I called to the captain
To put me ashore
For it looked like no man's land
Is this the way to follow
I cried as I shook his hand
He told me had no answer
He didn't really hold the key
I am a simple man
Was all he said to me

I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me a hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand

I heard my mother crying
She was calling out my name
Whisper in the dark night
Saying who's to blame
The hour glass keeps turning
With not enough sand to see
I am a holy man
So don't you bother me

I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me a hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand
I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me a hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand
