Out Of The Silence (Came A Song)

This song is by Porter Wagoner and appears on the album Porter Wagoner Country (1971) and on the album The Rubber Room (2006).

Silence was around me as I walked along my mind was so troubled I felt so alone
I had no desire to live I had not a will to go home
Then out of the silence came a song
The words were sharp and they cut deep into my troubled mind
The melody was pursy as it tore into this heart of mine
You have the legs to walk along while others are all lamed
You have a mind to think with while others are insane
You live while others dying and yet no thanks're shown
Out of the silence came this song
Then I saw a vision of myself my legs were bent and lame
Not only was I crippled but I couldn't speak my name
And then I saw a graveyard with my own funeral going on
Then out of the silence came a song
You have the legs to walk along while others are all lamed
You have a mind to think with so why should you complain
You live while others die and yet no thanks're shown out of the silence came this song
Out of the silence came a song
