Taylor The Lady

“I wrote ‘The Morning lies Heavy’ when my brother in law was due to be drafted. This was during the Vietnam war, although, as the Vietnam war is not mentioned in the song, whichever war it is is immaterial - the point is that any young man may experience such feelings before joining his unit, in any war situation…” (Allan Taylor)
The morning lies heavy on me, father
I couldn't find the time to fall asleep
And I couldn't stop from thinking on it either
And the morning lies heavy on me

They said I wouldn't have to be there 'till tomorrow
And there's friends of mine I've really got to see
But it's not goodbye, I know there's soon to follow
And the morning lies heavy on me

Tell me, who's the one who fights until he's broken
Is it the men who sit in judgement of us all
I wouldn't care if it was their lives they were taking
They don't listen nor even answer to the call

And tomorrow I'll be flying from the mainland
And joining in a new company
And some of us will never see our homeland
And the morning lies heavy on me

And what's left for decent people to believe in
It's not a question of to be or not to be
And what's the point, it's only us that we're deceiving
And the morning lies heavy on me

Tell me who's the one who fights until he's broken
Is it the men who sit in judgement of us all
I wouldn't care if it was their lives they were taking
But they don't listen nor even answer to the call

The morning lies heavy on me, father
I couldn't find the time to fall asleep
And I couldn't stop from thinking on it either
And the morning lies heavy on me
