All The King's Men
by Wayne Watson

Album: New Lives For Old


And it said all the King's horses and all the King's men
Worked but in vain to revive Him again
And the end of the story's a sad one to sing

Well, I read them a story and I tucked them in bed
But I couldn't stop thinkin' 'bout a rhyme that I read
How a one in misfortune had fallen one day
And how broken in pieces he lay

It said all the King's horses and all the King's men
Worked but in vain to revive Him again
And the end of the story's a sad one to sing

Now you and I often are much like the one
That ended in ruin when the deeds were all done
The best of intentions, well, they don't mean a thing
'Cause they never were meant to take the place of the King

'Cause all the King's horses and all the King's men
Worked but in vain to revive Him again
And the end of the story's a sad one to sing
They never turned their eyes to the King

Have all His examples of love and of trust
Been forgotten and left far behind?
Has our once crystal vision been clouded with dust?
There's a message of truth in the rhyme

'Cause it said all the King's horses and all the King's men
Worked but in vain to revive Him again
And the end of the story's a sad one to sing
For those who never turned to the King, oh, no
For those who never turned to the King, oh, no
For those who never turned to the King
