Make My Stand

the winds are kicking up around me now i can feel them brush and scrape me got a feelin' life's about to change ain't a thing that can last forever.. i been a loner for far too long now on my own in a cold dark world-but i been thinkin' 'bout a trip back home Heaven and Earth in one place.. i wanna take a trip across that ocean try to find me a piece of land a wooden palace on an evergreen landscape with a river so my kids can play.. i'd like to live on a California hillside Pine trees, rocks and things.. me and my lady got a few small dreams from up above earth look so fine.. lotta folks say they don't like rain lotta people are afraid of pain i ain't afraid of a little bit o' thunder i like to watch when the lightning strike... i ain't sure about a whole lotta things, but- i know jesus was a peaceful man gettin' tired of the chasin', racin'.. i need a place i can make my stand.
