PRIDE OF MAN Hamilton Camp as recorded by Gordon Lightfoot 1966 also recorded by Quicksilver Messenger Service 1968 Turn around go back down go back the way you came Can't you see the flash of fire ten times brighter than the day And behold the mighty city broken in the dust again Oh God the pride of man broken in the dust again. Turn around go back down go back the way you came Babylon is laid to waste Egypt's buried in her shame Their mighty men are beaten down the kings are fallen in the ways Oh God the pride of man broken in the dust again. Turn around go back down go back the way you came Terror is on ever every side though the leaders are dismayed Those who put their faith in fire in fire their faith shall be repaid Oh God the pride of man broken in the dust again. Turn around go back down go back the way you came Shout a warning to the nations that the sword of god is raised On Babylon that mighty city rich in treasure wide in fame It shall cause thy tower to fall and make it be a pyre of flame. Oh God the pride of man broken in the dust again. Thou that dwell on many waters rich in treasure wide in fame Bow unto a god of gold thy pride of might shall be thy shame Oh God the pride of man broken in the dust again. And only God can lead the people back into the earth again Thy holy mountain be restored, thy mercy on thy people Lord. (Transcribed by David Story - February 2013)
