When I walk beside her, I am the better man
When I look to leave her I always stagger back again
Once I built an ivory tower so I could worship from above
And when I climbed down to be set free, she took me in again

There's a big, a big hard sun
Beating on the big people in the big hard world

When she comes to greet me she is mercy at my feet
When I stay to pillage her, she just throws it back at me
Once I dug an early grave to find a better land
She just smiled and laughed at me and took her blues back again

There's a big, a big hard sun
Beating on the big people in the big hard world
There's a big, a big hard sun
Beating on the big people in the big hard world

And when I go to cross that river she is comfort by my side
When I try to understand she just opens up her eyes

Solo

There's a big, a big hard sun
Beating on the big people in the big hard world

Once I stood to lose her when I saw what I had done
Bowed down and threw away the hours of her garden and her sun
So I tried to want her and turned to see her weep
40 days and 40 nights and it's still coming down on me

There's a big, a big hard sun
Beating on the big people in the big hard world
There's a big, a big hard sun
Beating on the big people in the big hard world
There's a big, a big hard sun
Beating on the big people in the big hard world
There's a big, a big hard sun
Beating on the big people in the big hard world
