I Hear Them All  Old Crow Medicine Show



[A]  [E]  [A]                                 
I hear the cr[D]ying of the hungry in the de[A]serts where they're wandering
Yeah, they're c[E]rying out for heavens own ben[A]evolence upon them
I hear d[D]estructive power prevailing, I hear f[A]ools falsing hailing
To the crooked words of ty[E]rants when they [F#m]call [D]
[A]I hear them all
[E]I hear them all
[A]I hear them all
I hear the sounds of tearing pages and the roar of burning paper
All the crimes and acquisition turn to air and ash and paper
And the rabble of the shackle fall behind t'emancipator?
And lowliest together in their stalls
I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all

Harmonica Solo

So while you're sitting whilst dixie with your money and your power
I can hear the flowers a growing in the rubble of the towers
I hear leaders quit their lying, I hear babys quit their crying
I hear soldiers quit their dying one and all
I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all

Harmonica Solo

I hear the tender words from Zion
I hear Noah's waterfall
hear the gentle lamb of Juda sleeping at the feet of Buddah
And the prophets from Elijah to the old Paiute (Provoca?)
Take their places at the table when they're called
I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all...

interesting to note the missing lyric:

"and the prophets from elijah to the old paiute Wovaka"

Wovaka was a turtle island medicine man and seer. i think the paiute lands are in what is now known as nevada. Wovaka brought the "ghost dance" to many tribes on the continent as a last desperate effort to stave off slaughter by the anglos. i know little about the ghost dance except that it seemed to be a sort of trancen-dance to expel the anglos from their reality. for more info on native american history and the collision of that culture with the anglos', read Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, by Dee Brown.
