Lyrics

I can see it in your eyes
It must have been a debt you owed
Signed on the line between the lies
Now you’re carrying this heavy load

It’s a world of trouble from dust to dust
Stirring it up on down the road
It’s useless stuff, all turned to rust
Still we’re carrying this heavy load

Oh oh well don’t you know
We’re carrying a heavy load
From way back in the days of old
We’ve been carrying this heavy load

Why are we carrying this grief & sorrow
Is it due to some unwritten code
There is no past, there’s no tomorrow
Still we’re carrying this heavy load

Um let your voice be heard
Down in the neighborhood
Sing the truth just like a bird
Unleash your feeling like you know you should

Oo, I love sweet harmonies
Smiling in & smiling out
Let’s sing some more sweet harmonies
That’s what it’s all about

Oh Oh Oh

You may have plenty, yet you may want more
You’re carrying a heavy load
Be you rich or be you poor
You’re carrying a heavy load

I just can’t stand it anymore
For we are reaping just what we sowed
But emerging from my very core
I’m letting go of this heavy load

Oh oh well don’t you know
We’re carrying a heavy load
From way back in the days of old
We’ve been carrying this heavy load

Oo, I love sweet harmonies
Smiling in & smiling out
Let’s sing some more sweet harmonies
That’s what it’s all about

Oh Oh Oh
