Carrying The Weight
Written by Jimmy Whiffen/Ron McNeill © 2012 (SOCAN)
Verse 1
I grew up knowin nothin but shame
Cause all over town they knew my last name
The Sins of the father I know ain’t my fault
But I’m carrying of my fathers cross

Chorus
I’m Carrying the weight of my fathers cross
I’ve got thorns in my thoughts Oh God I’m so lost
Bleeding my soul I’m paying the cost
Carrying the weight of my fathers cross

Verse 2
I spent my childhood being alone
My mom always working cause he couldn't come home
He’s doing life time can’t the turn back the clock
And I’m carrying the weight of my fathers cross

Chorus
I’m Carrying the weight of my fathers cross
I’ve got thorns in my thoughts Oh God I’m so lost
Bleeding my soul I’m paying the cost
Carrying the weight of my fathers cross

Bridge
To be forgiven we have to forgive
To be free from our troubles so we may live
Remember the love of our lord Jesus Christ
To give us all life he paid ultimate price
He was carrying the weight of my Fathers cross.

Chorus
I’m Carrying the weight of my fathers cross
I’ve got thorns in my thoughts Oh God I’m so lost
Bleeding my soul I’m paying the cost
Carrying the weight of my fathers cross
