I’m standing here a broken man
There’s darker clouds a rollin’ in
And I can’t get away from them
No matter how I try

And it’s foolish to complain
We all go back to dust again
But I confess there’s something strange
Tearing up my eyes

And the dust came down
And the light got lost
And there ain’t no way
To calculate the cost

Cause it’s all around
And it coats my heart
And the weight of it
Is tearing me a-part

When the dust is thick and dry
And you’re forced to close your eyes
If you can see your baby smile
You have hope my friend
The best that we can hope to do
Is help somebody make it through
So take a hand and see if you
Have the strength to lend
