The Ways of Men
Words and Music by Steve Padgett
on Second Hand by Mark Heard
Copyright 1991 Scout and Angel Music

  D             G       D
I wish that the ways of men 
                     G       D
Were the same as the ways of God
    G     A           D            Bm
How is it so that our thick little hearts 
          G      A            Bm
Leave the narrow path for the broad?
          G      A            D
Leave the narrow path for the broad
                    G        D
We could fly on the wings of eagles
                      G       D
We could see with the eyes of love
         G            A         D          Bm
We could laugh with a childlike lack of concern 
        G                A            D
For the world would have nothing to fear of
      G       D
Fear, we have plenty
                      G              D
And countless are the ways that we decieve
  G            A            D              Bm
A piece can be heard on the breath of each morning
   G           A           Bm           
By evening the widows will grieve
   G           A           D
By evening the widows will grieve


(Chorus)
          G      A            D
So, sing, sing a song for the ones who mourn
        G      A       D
Light a candle for the world war-torn
     G           A            D       Bm
Find hope in the Lord if your soul is worn
          G              A       Bm
And say a prayer for the ways of men
      G              A           D
Say a prayer for the ways of the men

        G         D
Oh, you wandering souls
        G                 D
Huddled against the harsh wind
        G       A              D    Bm
It does no good railing at the evil gale
         G              A     Bm
Men have died while the devil grin
         G              A     D
Men have died while the devil grin
                    G       D
So take courage you pilgrim kind
                       G     D
When the good that you do is mocked
        G           A             D          Bm
For the day it will come when the proud will fall
        G                A               Bm
And the ground that they walk on will be rocked
    G                A                D
The ground that they stand on will be rocked


(Chorus)
          G      A            D        Bm
Oh, sing, sing a song for the ones who mourn
      G              A       Bm
Say a prayer for the ways of men
      G              A       Bm
Say a prayer for the ways of men
      G              A       Bm
Say a prayer for the ways of men
      G              A       D
Say a prayer for the ways of men
