Sung by Rick Pollay at the Singaround today:

Weeping In The Promised Land
Song by John Fogerty

Water in the well been poisoned with lies
Weepin' in the Promised Land
Satan's dark angels are fallin' from the sky
Weepin' in the Promised Land
Children of God, he turns into stone
Sick and the weak, he dancin' on their bones
Pharaoh shoutin' down the medicine man
Weepin' in the Promised Land
Forked-tongued pharaoh, behold he comes to speak
Weepin' in the Promised Land
Hissin' and spewin', it's power that he seeks
Weepin' in the Promised Land
With dread in their eyes, all the nurses are cryin'
So much sorrow, so much dyin'
Pharaoh keep a-preaching but he never had a plan
Weepin' in the Promised Land
Weepin' in the Promised Land
You say, weepin', weepin'
Weepin' in the Promised Land
You say, weepin', weepin'
Weepin' in the Promised Land
Pharaoh's army knockin' on the door
Weepin' in the Promised Land
Shoot you in your bed just like they done before
Weepin' in the Promised Land
Out in the street, on your neck with a knee
All the people are cryin' your last words, "I can't breathe"
And a white judge say, "There been no crime here today"
Weepin' in the Promised Land
Weepin' in the Promised Land
You say, weepin', weepin'
Weepin' in the Promised Land
You say, weepin', weepin'
Weepin' in the Promised Land
We're weepin', weepin'
Weepin' in the Promised Land
Yeah, weepin', weepin'
Weepin' in the Promised Land
