Kris Kristofferson

Let the Walls Come Down


On a cold dark corner in town

An old soul standing his ground

Sang his heart right out at a world

Passing him by

I can still hear every word

Of a song that nobody heard

'Cause he sang right out of his soul

Into the sky, when he cried,



           Let the walls come down

           Let the love come through

         When it all comes down

         Well, it's up to you

         Let the walls come down

         Let it all come true

         When it all comes down

         It's up to me and you


Talking man or woman to man

Pray to God just as hard as you can

Brother, help your brother in need

Just as soon as you see one


'Cause you can't free nobody else

If you can't be true to yourself

If you're looking for a miracle now

Buddy, you better be one

All alone, on your own


***Repeat Chorus
