Leon Russell - Prince Of Peace Lyrics




Try and judge me only by my time and changes
And not mistaken words, for I say many
Listen only to my song and watch my eyes
There's not much time to spill, there's hardly any

Well, look at all the children living in the streets
And they're looking, not afraid to touch each other
They're not afraid to be themselves or someone else
Or choose their friends with love and not by colour

Never treat a brother like a passing stranger
Honey, won't you always try to keep the love light burning
Sing a song of love and open up your heart
For you might be the prince of peace returning
Yeah, you might be the prince of peace returning

Oh, the love the blind and wounded as that you would yourself
And the businessmen in cells collecting pennies
Judge their wealth by coins that they give away
And not the ones that they keep for themselves for spending

Oh, never be impatient with the ones who love you
It might be yourself that you're burning
Sing a song of love and open up your heart
For you might be the prince of peace returning

Never treat a brother like a passing stranger
Honey, won't you always try to keep the love light burning
Sing a song of love and open up your heart
For you might be the prince of peace returning
For you might be the prince of peace returning

Oh, if I pay me, if I pay you
If I pray to your Jesus then you gonna tell us what you're about to do?
What if I pay me and I might pay you
Who's got the money? Who's got the money?
Who's got the money for, sing the song

    I'll always Love you Leon Russell.

  6. Anna Aultman

    A friend introduced me to Leon. I absolutely love it.

  7. Xardox17

    I've been to innumerable concerts. The three hours of the tightest music I ever saw live was Leon Russell.
    What a pro!

    G0K3001

    Actually, and I'm not jiving;same here!

  8. J De

    God, how good does it feel to hear Leon rocking like this? When he starts singing I'm magically thrust back to the early 70's and those mystically fun times.

    pecvillian

    Oh yeah those times were fun.

    J De

    Certain singer's voices do that.

  9. Dallas Lockrey

    Awesome video. I love Leon Russell in this era. It's like watching the Muppet's band "Dr. Teeth" come to life.

    pecvillian

    The early 1970's was for sure the best time for Leon's music.

  10. America's Taken

    The music of my life. So grateful I was alive during Leon's body of work.

  11. WOLF STONEHENGE

    Maranatha

    WOLF STONEHENGE

    Look it up

    pecvillian

    Ok. The Lord is coming, or has come, or something like that.

    adventuresinbelieving

    Amen! And Leon knew it..

    Dave Bartholome

    Yeah, except I don't really see this as an explicitly religious song. The scriptural reference gives added resonance to the basic theme of treating others as you would like to be treated. It's basic humanity, and it transcends sectarian religion.

  12. Pancho Winter

    Rest in Peace - You Rep Tulsa so well!

  13. TheIWYKChannel

    Great to see Chuck Blackwell going strong here. RIP...

  14. Ariellyn

    RIP to one whose love for his craft and indescribable talent generates love and joy and will keep his music and his name alive for generations to come. Though I never knew Leon personally, various biographical commentaries as well as from interviews with him, seem to indicate that this was one man untouched by the usual trappings of his profession, i.e. chasing fame, destructive drug and alcohol abuse. Did he use? Of course he did. Didn't EVERYONE?? But it would appear that his love of music surpassed any substance abuse. There really is a difference between using and abusing and he knew when and where to draw the line. I never tire of watching him perform.

  15. Manny Enviado

    a rare one /// , a special man and musician song writer. no hypocrisy in this man--leon was leon. he is forever

    Yes it does. The year I graduated from high school. If I remember correctly, I bought my first Leon Russell album that year. You are very welcome for the flashback.
