Heaven Help Us All
David Ruffin Lyrics


Heaven help the child who never had a home,
Heaven help the girl who walks the streets alone
Heaven help the roses if the bombs begin to fall,
Heaven help us all.
Heaven help the black man if he struggles one more day,
Heaven help the white man if he turns his back away.
Heaven help the man who kicks the man who has to crawl,
Heaven help us all.
Heaven help us all
Heaven help us all, help us all.
Heaven help us, Lord, hear our call when we call Oh, yeah!
Heaven help the boy who won't reach twenty one,
Heaven help the man who gave that boy a gun.
Heaven help the people with their backs against the wall,
Lord, Heaven help us all.
Heaven help us all.
Heaven help us all,
Heaven help us all, help us all.
Heaven help us, Lord, hear our call when we call, help us all.

Now I lay me down before I go to sleep.
In a troubled world, I pray the Lord to keep, keep hatred from the mighty,
And the mighty, from the small,
Heaven help us all.
Oh, oh, oh, yeah!
Heaven help us all
Heaven help us all.
Heaven help us all,
Heaven help us all, help us all.
Heaven help us, Lord, hear our call when we call, help us all.

No one tops David. His .screams are merciless. David was one of the first to sue Motown

Jonathan Clary

Actually David Ruffin's Screams Are Based On His Spiritual Background

All I can say is "WOW!" This is my first time hearing this song by David! He starts out very methodical, but midway into the song, it's like the spirit took over! This is right up there with Stevie's 1970 version, which is also fantastic!

i love David Ruffins version of this track it is nailbiting and stirs the hairs on the back of one' neck. the last verse is the most striking as today we face people homeless and destitute and young men turning to crime out of boredom and hoplessness.i should have said desperation. thank you David Ruffin , Noreen, United Kingdom
