    Lyrics

    Listen to the rhythm, listen to the beat
    It has a cold wind blowing up through the street
    Soul crying out
    People crying out

    In through the valleys in through the streets
    Feel the whole world moving underneath our feet
    Something's going on
    I said what is going wrong

    I feel them coming so close behind
    Sister says, we're next in line
    The man he says, that's okay
    And the government says you're gonna pay, pay, pay
    And you pay, still you pay

    It's just a soul crying out
    And little the people crying out
    It's the land crying out
    And I can hear you crying out

    And I say, I don't know maybe I don't care
    What I know is, I gotta get out of here
    And I'm going, going any day
    Some sweet day, some sweet day
    I gotta find a way

    I can hear the lovers, whisper in the street
    See a crowd has gathered underneath the heat
    I hear what they say
    But I don't believe what they say

    I see the woman, with tears in her eyes
    I hear the baby, calling in the night
    Something on the bed, was it something she said
    Hell this is not right, what goes on through the night

    I hear her coming, all in my mind
    Sweet common love, so hard to find
    Someone said, man that's sad
    And the people walk by, 'cause they're so blind
    And you pay, still you pay

    It's just a soul crying out
    Just the people crying out
    It's the earth crying out
    And I can hear you crying out
    And I can feel you crying out

    And I say, I don't know, maybe I don't care
    All I know is, I gotta get out of here
    And I'm going, going any way
    Do you know, some place to go
    I'm getting out of here

    Where will I find some peace of mind
    I'm getting out of here

    I come walking to you
    I come singing to you
    Some sweet day
    I'm gonna walk away
    I'm gonna walk away

    It's just the soul crying out
    It's just the land crying out
    It's just the children crying out
    All the babies crying out

    Any way, some sweet day
    I'm gonna walk away, turn away
    It's just the soul crying out
    It's just the land crying out

    I wanna hear, I want you here
    Some sweet day
    Ah, just a soul crying out
    Of a land crying out anyway
    Oh when you say

    Some sweet day
