Quiet Faith Of Man
By Jerry Jeff Walker

  D             D/F#           G        Em
A baby child is born along the highway
  A           G              D
A tiny little thing upon the land
   D             D/F#              G     Em
An okie with his dreams out on the byway
A              G  A        D 
Lifts the tiny baby in his hand
    D              D/F#            G       Em
The woman smiles a little smile of knowing
    A                  G             D
And whispers something softly in his ear
    D            D/F#               G       Em 
Perhaps a little prayer to help the growing 
   A              G       A           D
Perhaps a word of comfort through the fears

    G         G/F#    Em       A       D
You trust the moon to move the mighty ocean
    G         G/F#   Em             A
You trust the sun to shine upon the land
    G               A            D               G
The little that you know and you do the best you can
    A                                    D
You see the rest with the quiet faith of man

A tractor makes its way along the fence line
And drops the seeds precisely in a row
If the rains are kind and the winds don't take the topsoil
Before too long the crops will start to show
The farmer sees the fields around him growin'
He whispers something low beneath his breath
Perhaps a little prayer to help the growin'
Perhaps a word of thanks for all the rest


There's a storm tossed ship tonight out on the ocean
There's a soul somewhere adrift out on the blue
There's a dreamer with his eyes upon the heavens
They're all looking for a way to make it through
