Raven's Child by John Denver


Raven's child is chasing salvation

Black beak turned white from the crack and the snow

On the streets of despair the answer is simple

A spoonful of mercy can set free the soul

 

The drug king sits on his arrogant throne

Away and above and apart

Even children are twisted to serve him

Greed has corrupted what once was a heart

 

Raven's child keeps vigil for freedom

Trades for the arms that once made her strong

With nuclear warheads and lasers in heaven

Fear does the choosing between right and wrong

 

The arms king sits on his arrogant throne

Away and above and apart

Bankers assure him he needn't care

Greed makes a stone of what once was a heart

Raven's child is washing the water

All of her wing feathers blackened with tar

Prince william shoreline an unwanted highway

Of asphalt and anger an elegant scar

 

The oil king sits on his arrogant throne

Away and above and apart

Lawyers have warned him he mustn't speak

Greed has made silent what once was a heart

 

Still there are walls that come tumbling down

For people who yearn to be free

Still there are hearts that long to be opened

And eyes that are longing to see

 

Raven's child is our constant companion

Sticks like a shadow to all that is done

Try as we may we just can't escape him

The source of our sorrow and shame we are one

 

The true king sits on a heavenly throne

Never away nor above nor apart

With wisdom and mercy and constant compassion

He lives in the love that lives in our hearts

 

Raven's child is washing the water

Raven's child keeps vigil for freedom

Raven's child's chasing salvation

Raven's child is our constant companion
