2/18/1996 alternate lyrics

here the sun rise
and out the rising ocean
oh from mommies and precedents
comes life forming
from womb and from baby's smile
come nothing but innocence
from god and from ideals
come nothing by trouble

so maybe I should just be hopeful
maybe the darkest hour is yet to come

yea

from the child I learned
laugh at everything
from a child I learned
to smile at a friend going
from a child I learned
to stare (at her waist?)
and weigh in all that (creation? makes)
and wait I would as
the nothing begin to fall away
from then I would (at last on?)
be the child

yea

and now from my mother
perched me in her arms
and showed me the world
she walked past it all
oh I see and I remember
staring over her shoulder

The mother is the one that I
open my heart to
My mother is the one that I should
give all my love to

Mother rain on then
wait in the light
that child should break away

The weight of the world
a child smiling
The weight of the world
is of a child's
the weight of the world is
of a child's smile

it's in a child's smile...

..then drawing..

this land is your land
this land is my land
from california to the new york island
from the redwood forest
to the gulf stream water
this land was made for you and me

the weight of the world
beyond is raining
