Song: Bread Upon the Water

…………………………
Cast your bread on the waters:
for you shall find it after many days.
…………………………… —Ecclesiastes

The young don’t keep
and the old just go
and the keeper of the sheep
casts a long, long shadow
and your song won’t come
where your life won’t go

so throw your bread on the water
and beat your feet to the chimes
and if you have a daughter
and you count your change to the dime
and if you open up the borders
you”ll let it all fall in behind

Every book just speaks
and every light just shines
and every touch just feels
and every look just finds
and everywhere just is
and every road’s a line

so throw your bread on the water
and beat your feet to the chimes
and if you have a daughter
and you count your change to the dime
and if you open up the borders
you’ll let it all fall in behind

When every deed is done
and the morale is so low
and the dream is over
just like it didn’t grow
well, the soil is still good
and with what we know

throw your bread on the water
and beat your feet to the chimes
and if you have a daughter
and you count your change to the dime
and if you open up the borders
it’ll all fall in behind

song by Jim Culleny, 1970
