Subject: Lyr Req: McCutcheon/Chapin song 'Heaven & Help'
From: Mark Cohen
Date: 18 Jul 03 - 12:45 AM

Just heard the tail end of a song called "Heaven and Help", by John McCutcheon and Tom Chapin, on WKSU.org. The last line was "Though all the world may turn you out, I will take you in/Heaven help the one, heaven help the two" Can't find it on Google. Anybody know the lyrics?

Aloha,
Mark

It's on Chapin's "Doing our Job" cd. I've never seen a book of his adult songs, just his kid/family music.

Here it is, copied from John McCutcheon's website:

HEAVEN HELP
(John McCutcheon & Tom Chapin)

Heaven help the one. Heaven help the two.
Heaven help me say these things I need to say to you.
It seems a simple thing to tell you what I feel,
But I'm stumbling and I'm staggering over what I know is real.

Back when we were young, just a boy and girl,
It seems like we had all the time and chances in the world:
A graduation gown into a wedding dress,
A garden in the backyard and a baby at your breast.
This world we made of love and flesh and bone
Grew up and walked out the door and made worlds of their own.

So here we are again as the river flows on.
This house feels like a coat too big with the children grown and gone.
And now we're left alone, just me, just you,
All this space to find ourselves. I guess it's overdue.
After all these years, you'd think I'd have a name
For the mystery that keeps this heart and life aflame.

Come take my hand. Come take my heart.
Come take me to that place where you and I can start.
Let the lights go down. Let the days grow dim.
Though all the world may turn you out, I will take you in.

Heaven help the one. Heaven help the two.
