Build A Little Village

This song is by Greg Brown and appears on the album Solid Heart (1999).

Ah tonight I'm feelin' lonely
My friends are far away
Some are out in oregon
Some in new york state
Time is flyin' by
Faster every year
I'm gonna get out my shovel
Put it in the ground right here

I'm gonna build a little village
That's what I'm gonna do
Gonna build a little village
For me and you

Well some little children
Ain't got no one to care
Every night they pray
For some love from somewhere
Some old people so lonely
They wanna talk and sing
Why don't we get together now
And do this lovely thing

Why don't we build a little village
That's what we oughta do
Ah build a little village
You come too

Oh a light in the window for supper
One for company
A light in the window for laughter
And one for sympathy
A light in the window for welcome
And one for how we begin
A light in the window in the darkness
That says "child come right on in"

We're gonna build a little village
That's what we're gonna do
Ah build a little village
You come too
