This morning I was born again

by Woody Guthrie


This morning I was born again, and a light shines on my land,

I no longer look for heaven in your deathly distznt land.

I do not want your pearly gates, don’t want your streets of gold,

this morning I was born again, and a light shines in my soul.


This morning I was born again, I was born again complete, 

I stood up above my troubles, and I stand on my own two feet.

My hand it feels unlimited, my body feels like the sky,

I feel at home in the universe, where yonder planets fly,=.


This morning I was born again, my past is dead and gone.

This great eternal moment is my great eternal dawn.

Each drop of blood within me, each breath of life I breathe

is united with these mountains, and the mountains with the seas.


I feel the sun upion me, it’s rays crawl through my skin.

I breathe the life of Jesus, and old John Henry in.

I give myself, my heart, my soul, to give a friend a hand,

this mornin ing I was born again, I am in the promised land.


This morning I was born again, and a light shines on my land,

I no longer look for heaven in your deathly distznt land.

I do not want your pearly gates, don’t want your streets of gold,

And I do not want your mansion for my heart is never cold.
