I Hear You Sing Again

Woody Guthrie/Janis Ian

If I could only hear my mother sing again
If I could close my eyes and hear your voice as then
All the friends and family
would sing along with me,
and set your spirit free

In my heart I hear you sing again
Every note as natural as then
When I sing those songs
with family and friends,
in my heart I hear you sing again

I know the troubled times that turned your hair to grey
and all the tears and sorrows followed to your grave
but deep within the heart of hunger,
there were always melodies
passed from you to me

In my heart I hear you sing again
Every note as natural as then
When I sing those songs
for family and friends,
in my heart I hear you sing again

And it's a long, long road I've come
since my mother's songs were heard
but the child I can't outrun
still hangs on every word

In my heart I hear you sing again
Every note as natural as then
When I sing those songs
with family and friends,
in my heart I hear you sing again
In my heart, I hear you sing again
