Sweet Jesus
Drewett

Chorus:
Sweet Jesus, sweet Jesus are you listening to me,
sometimes I wonder, oh I wonder if you're listening to me.

I've tried and I've tried to live the good life,
I've been kind to my children and faithful to my wife,
I worked hard 'til they closed down the mines,
aided and abetted by, some ex friends of mine.

Chorus

There's work in the south but I can't afford a home,
and I can't afford a home If I don't work.
But I would never cross a picket line,
I would sell my labour but not my peace of mind.

Chorus

Where is the promise, where is the promise
where is the promise, the promise land? 
Where all of our skills are properly used
for the good of the common man.
Where is the promise, where is the promise
where is the promise, the promise land?
Don't sell yourselves by selling out
be strong and make a stand 

Well the system, it's not working for me
nor the poor and the sick who it's brought to its knees.
The government tore our community apart,
drove the police, like a wedge through its heart. 
                                                            
Chorus
                                                
Does true democracy show in the courts,
when so few own the papers that mould the nations thoughts.
I was brought up to respect the law,
but there ain't no room for scabs in the Kingdom of the Lord.

Chorus

Where is the promise, where is the promise etc....
