When I Rise

When I Rise
By Jimmy Rankin and Tom Kimmel

If I was a pretty girl
I wouldn’t be standing here
I wouldn’t be all alone
I’d have my way with the world

If I was a pretty girl
I wouldn’t be scared like this
Wouldn’t need to lay so low
Call any old man sir

Call any old man sir
I’d never have to wait in back
Let everybody else come first
Stuff like that

When I rise out of the ashes
I’m gonna fly to the end of the earth
I will sing sweet as an angel
The prettiest song you’ve ever heard

If I was a rich man
Wouldn’t have to break my back
Wouldn’t have to walk this line
You’d never see me tip my hat

If I was a rich man
You’d never see me sell my work
I would never bend my knee
Praying for a helping hand

Praying for a helping hand
Waiting for a lucky break
Trying to build a house on sand
For heaven’s sake

When I rise out of the ashes
I’m gonna fly to the end of the earth
I will sing sweet as an angel
The prettiest song you’ve ever heard

Praying for a helping hand
Waiting for a lucky break
Trying not to give a damn
For heaven’s sake

When I rise out of the ashes
I’m gonna fly to the end of the earth
I will sing sweet as an angel
The prettiest song you’ve ever heard
