"Travelin' Prayer" as written by and Billy Joel....
Hey Lord, take a look all around
And I'd a find where my baby's gonna be
Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
'Cause she is far across the sea
Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
And make sure that she's gonna be alright
And things are gonna be alright with me

Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
And make sure that all her dreams are sweet
Said now, would ya guide her on the roads
And make them softer for her feet
Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
And make sure that she's gonna be alright
Until she's home and here with me

Hey, Lord would ya look out for her tonight
If she is sleepin' under the sky
Said now, make sure the ground she's sleepin' on
Is always warm and dry
Um, don'tcha give her too much rain
Try to keep her away from pain
Because my baby hates to cry

Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
'Cause it gets rough along the way
Said now, this song seems strange is just because
I don't know how to pray
Um, won'tcha give her peace of mind
And if you ever find the time
Won'tcha tell her I miss her everyday

Hey Lord, take a look all around
And I'd a-find where my baby's gonna be
Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
'Cause she is far across the sea
Hey Lord, would ya look out for her tonight
And make sure that she's gonna be alright
Until she's home and here with me
With me

    General CommentThis is an interesting Billy Joel song, it has a bluegrass feel to it; it is one of my favorite BJ songs, most people only know 2 or 3 songs from his Piano Man album but if you listen to it from begining to end it is a marvolous album and this song is a wonderful start. The topic of this perticular song is that of a traveler who's prayers are not for his own safety and help along his route but for his Baby.

    General CommentLove this song, love the way it builds up and the bluegrass feel as mentioned in the previous comment. I only heard it from the first time about a year ago. I was slowly making my way back home with not much money to europe from new zealand via the states and got a flight i think from dallas to charlotte. i'd lost my mp3 player so had to listen to the crappy airline 'radio stations' which are just recordings on a loop but one of them on that us air flight that day was playing travelling related songs and this came up. so downloaded when i got home plus a bunch of his other songs to make sure i hadn't missed any other gems!
