I walk a lonely road
There’s a junction up ahead
I’ve got no job, no home
Nearly all my money’s spent
I came for a resolution
A certain answer clear
But it ain’t what I need
And I will not find it here
Woah, oh, oh, woah

Painting circles in the empty sky
The vultures cry, ‘You’re dead’
Snakes whisper ‘Rest a while’
‘Lay down your weary head.’

Then the red sun bursts on the mountain high
Spills like blood down the valley dry
Peace like a river extend to me, and carry my feet on by
No brother before me or behind
My mind is worn and my body’s tired
Peace like a river extend to me and carry my feet on by

Well I am a desert owl, an owl among the ruins
Looking on with wisdom and with sorrow
In the words of a great man
This world is dying and it’s hardly been born
So I, sing to serve the ones who search beyond the shadows
The shadows

Carry my feet on, carry my feet on by

Oh peace like a river won’t you carry my feet on by
Peace Like a river, carry my feet on by
Oh peace like a river, carry my feet on by
