She asked me maybe
I would share her sorrow
About the men that tried to treat her wrong

Though just a baby
A waiting her tomorrow
It's rock me baby, rock me baby
All night long

She needs an answer to her confusion
Someone to guide her with tenderness
But if she's asking for a solution
All that she gets
You know it's something like this

Don't know where we come from
Don't know where we're going to
But if all of this should have a reason
We would be the last to know

So let's just hope there is a promised land
Hang on till then as best you can
Everybody's ills you know it

Fills her with compassion
That's why she tries
To save the world alone

She helps the needy in her own fashion
And tries to give them all her own
Rock me baby, rock me baby
All night long

    General CommentI think both of the previous comments might be good, but not being able to ask John Kay, I can give my thoughts of when the song was on the charts, where I first heard it. The '60s, and what was happening in the US, I
    and others took the song as to be about America and what was happening and being done in her name. The powers-that-be in the name of greed and power, and furthering their own agenda, which appears to be happening again, but in a more pseudo-sophisticated and they hope, a more hidden way. To us, who have been there previously, are not fooled. In any case, the song spoke to me as a declaration of sorrow for the country and her true sons and daughters who tried to save her.
