    Pillar of Davidson - Live

    Written about common people working in a factory. The band is from my hometown, and the title is a combination of Caterpillar tractor Co. and Harley Davidson.....both have huge plants here in York. I worked in the Harley Plant for a couple years, and if you've ever punched a clock, dropped out of school, married the wrong woman...had no hope, then you'll get it.

                          Wedn'sday morning at five o'clock as the day begins,
                          Silently closing her bedroom door,
                          Leaving the note that she hoped would say more.
                          She goes down stairs to the kitchen clutching her hand kerchief.
                          Quetly turning the back door key,
                          Stepping outside she is free.

                          She ( We gave her most of our lives )
                          Is leaving ( Sacrificed most of our lives )
                          Home ( We gave her ev'rything money could buy )
                          She's leaving home after living alone for so many years.

                          Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing down.
                          Pick up the letter that's lying there,
                          Standing alone at the top of the stairs.
                          She breaks down and cries to her husband "Daddy, our baby's gone.
                          Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly,
                          Now could she do this to me."

                          She ( We never thought of ourselves )
                          Is leaving ( Never a thought of ourselves )
                          Home ( We struggled hard all our lives to get by )
                          She's leaving home after living alone for so many years.

                          Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away.
                          Waiting to keep the appointment she made,
                          Meeting a man from the motor trade.

                          She ( What did we do that was wrong )
                          Is having ( We didn't know it was wrong )
                          Fun ( Fun is the one thing that money can't buy )
                          Something inside that was always denied for so many years.
                          She's leaving home, bye, bye.

                            It was written by John Newton, a former slave trader who (in his own words) "was by the rich mercy of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, preserved, restored, pardoned, and appointed to preach."

                            Every time we sing it at a nursing home, many of the people will sit up and sing along. They seem to get great comfort from it and it gets me every time.

                            I didn't know this until recently. I always thought it was "just another hymn". Hearing about the man who wrote it (even though I do believe the melody existed before the words) and the change he went thorugh in his life as a person makes that line "I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see" in the first verse so totally different.
