The Tower Song


Here's a brand new song, that not exactly new: The Tower Song. Like it? Download it. Share it. Sing along.  (With thanks to Emily Dickinson for the first verse, sorta' and William Faulkner for the seventh verse.)




The ­­­­­Tower Song

1. I’ve come to tell the truth;
Let me tell it strange.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

2. This song is just a dream,
but dreams, they can be real.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

3. There’s a tower in New York City,
but it’s not for you and me.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

4. That tower’s full of gold,
but I don’t want none of it.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

5. That tower full of gold
is a poorhouse don’t you see.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

6. That tower built on profit
never listened to the prophet.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

7. The past is never dead -
it ain’t even past.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

8. That tower has many names;
some call it Babylon.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

9. Nimrod built a tower
long ago, way back when.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

10. Daniel saw a stone
that’ll bring that tower down.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

11. That mighty, rolling stone
will bring that tower down.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.

12. This song is just a dream,
but dreams, they can be real.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu.
