Whitesnake Holy Man Lyrics

I called to Madonna

To give me a line

She said boy what have you done

You’ve been passing your time with a holy man

Talking about the moon and sun

And I can’t tell the difference

Between the fool and wise

Show me a river to follow

Away from all these lies

I called to the captain

To put me ashore

For it looked like no man’s land

Is this the way to follow

I cried as I shook his hand

He told me had no answer

He didn’t really hold the key

I am a simple man

Was all he said to me

I’ve been on my own so long

Won’t you lend me a hand

I’ve been out in the cold too long

Won’t you understand

I heard my mother crying

She was calling out my name

Whisper in the dark night

Saying who’s to blame

The hour glass keeps turning

With not enough sand to see

I am a holy man

So don’t you bother me

I’ve been on my own so long

Won’t you lend me a hand

I’ve been out in the cold too long

Won’t you understand

I’ve been on my own so long

Won’t you lend me a hand

I’ve been out in the cold too long

Won’t you understand
