Sometimes You Never Know (Roy Payne) video

For years old Sam had handled all the
money in the township's western bank,
And everyday past closing time he'd sit
and touch the money while he drank;
He'd spend his time just dreaming of
exotic lands and girls he loved to hold,
And though the thought appealed to him,
old Sam decided he was much too old.

And though sometimes you never know,
bad winds will refuse to blow;
Forbidden dreams will just not grow,
although sometimes you never know.

Preacher Smith would visit widow Jenny
every Sunday afternoon,
And caution her about the flames of hell
and the path she was pursuin';
When Jenny had a baby and no one seemed
to note from where it came,
But every Thursday afternoon
the preacher'd show up for the baseball game.

And though sometimes you never know,
bad winds will refuse to blow;
Forbidden dreams will just not grow,
although sometimes you never know.

I had a dream where everybody in the world
was standing side by side,
We were holding hands and lookin'
at a man who on a cross had died;
And someone we had all forgotten
sent us down forgiveness from above,
So I turned around and for the first time
saw my brothers through the eyes of love.

And though sometimes you never know,
love and peace will surely grow;
Hate and war will cease to grow,
although sometimes we never know.

And though sometimes you never know,
love and peace will surely grow;
Hate and war will cease to grow,
although sometimes we never know.
