Bessie words and music by Karen Morand

Cobblestones, well-worn roads
Big steps, tiny toes
Copper penny, tight in hand
For the sugar, sugar man

Skies ahead are darkening
Enemies are threatening
O Canada – the Promised land
Fill the cup and empty hand

And Bessie, life is messy
And you know, you know, you know you know it better
Please tell me – buy and sell me
In the end, the end, the end
The bad guys don’t win

“Find a man,” is what you’re told
For a locket made of gold
Have some babies, make a home
He will wander, he will roam

And Bessie, life is messy
And you know, you know, you know you know it better
Please tell me – buy and sell me
In the end, the end, the end
The bad guys don’t win

Looking for answers
Filling in the blanks
Black and white whispers in the night
Could Jesus be in the balcony
And I am just blinded by the light?

Always sing, always laugh
Gather children on your lap
Give all you have and then give more
Hold them tight for what’s in store

And Bessie, life is messy
And you know, you know, you know
You know it better
Please tell me – buy and sell me
In the end, the end, the end
The bad guys don’t win
