Paul Simon Blessed Lyrics | The Official Paul Simon Site

SONGS + LYRICS

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit
Blessed is the lamb whose blood flows
Blessed are the sat upon, spat upon, ratted on
O Lord, Why have you forsaken me?
I got no place to go
I’ve walked around SoHo for the last night or so
Ah, but it doesn’t matter, no

Blessed is the land and the kingdom
Blessed is the man whose soul belongs to
Blessed are the meth drinkers ,pot sellers, illusion dwellers
O Lord, Why have you forsaken me?
My words trickle down like a wound
That I have no intention to heal

Blessed are the stained glass, windowpane glass
Blessed is the church service, makes, me nervous
Blessed are the penny rookers, cheap hookers, groovy lookers
O Lord, Why have you forsaken me?
I have tended my own garden much too long
