FOR THE WAYS OF THE WORLD (REVISITED)
WRITTEN 2/3/1999


For the ways of the world keep on
tearing me down. For the ways of
the world keep on making me frown.
For the ways of the world keep on
throwin' me 'round throwin' me
'round in this world. On the day
that I was left alone in this
world. On the day that all of my
family died. On the day that the
world came a tumbling down,
leaving me down all alone.

For the ways of the world
keep on tearing me down.
For the ways of the world
keep on making me frown.
For the ways of the world
keep on throwin' me round
throwin' me 'round in this world.
