Promised Land Lyrics

Whoa, well now
Hey, whoa, well

The promised land
Going to the promised land
Yes, the promised land, oh, gosh, now
To the promised land

Make a step down to Wasmara
Then we stopped in Addis Ababa
Made our way to Shshamane land
Riding on the King's highway

The promised land
Going to the promised land, oh, gosh
To the promised land, whoa
To the promised land, well

There's plenty of land for you and I, by and by
Lots of food to share for everyone
No time for segregation in the promised land, oh, gosh

Take me to the promised land
Said the promised land, whoa
Yes, the promised land, whoa, oh, yeah

Said we're riding on the King's highway
From a Cairo to Kenya
Made a stop in Wasmara
Then we made another one in Addis Ababa

The promised land
Going to the promised land, oh gosh
Said the promised land
Yeah, the promised land, whoa Then I said to myself, give a thanks for the Prophet, God
For He gave me the teachings so I could see
The reality of my true being and levity
There's a lot of work to be done, oh gosh
In the promised land

Yeah, talking 'bout the promised land
Yes, to the promised land
The promised land
Going to the promised land

Oh, the promised land
Whoa, the promised land
Said the promised land
Whoa, oh yeah, whoa

Brother man, what are you doing for the promised land?
Gotta take your stand and let the prophets live on, yeah
There's work to be done, though you can't run
Got a job to be done, so you've got to do it
Even a little by little

Yes the promised land
Going to the promised land
Said the promised land
Going to the promised land

Prophets of the old, said the west got to perish, eh, oh
Don't let your hopes and aspirations drown before you, no way
Gotta go, gotta go, got to go, I got to go, got to go
To the promised land, oh gosh
Yeah, the promised land, whoa
