Transcription

Heard it on the radio, and the daily news
People were all in shock, didn’t know what to do
We all hung our heads and prayed, life’s too short so frail
Parents lost the words to say, one man took it all away

Oh yeah, down in Virginia, in Blacksburg

We all gathered to sing a song
For the children that had gone
Hear the words of those who lived
Telling us we must forgive

Oh yeah, down in Virginia, in Blacksburg

Yeah!

It’s just sad for it all to end this way
Oh Lord can’t you take it all away
Give those hope, who need it now, today
Let’s show them, there is a better day

Yeah!

And show them there is a better day
[Spoken] A better day
Show them there is a better day
