Come As a Child (Or Not At All)

Lord, Protect My Child

written by Bob Dylan, arranged by Lost Dogs

For his age, he is wise
He's got his mother's eyes
There's gladness in his heart
He's young and he's wild
My only prayer is, if I can't be there,
Lord, protect my child

As his youth now unfolds
He is centuries old
Seein' him at play makes me smile
No matter what happens to me
No matter what my destiny
Lord, protect my child

Protect my child
Protect my child

When the world is asleep
You can look at him and weep
Few things you find are worthwhile
Though I don't ask for much
No material things to touch
Lord, protect my child

He's young and on fire
Full of hope and desire
In a world that's been raped, raped and defiled
And if I fall along the way
And can't see another day
Lord, protect my child

Protect my child
Protect my child

There'll be a time I hear tell
When all will be well
Well God and man have been reconciled
But until men lose their chains
And the righteousness reigns
Lord, protect my child

Lead vocals-Mike and Terry/ BGV's-all the Dogs
