Glen Campbell - Try A Little Kindness Lyrics

 

If you see your brother standing by the road

With a heavy load from the seeds he sowed

And if you see your sister falling by the way

Just stop and say you're goin' the wrong way

You've got to try a little kindness yes show a little kindness

Yes shine your light for everyone to see

And if you'll try a little kindness and you'll overlook the blindness

Of the narrow minded people on the narrow minded streets

 

Don't walk around the down and out lend a helping hand instead of doubt

And the kindness that you show every day will help someone along their way

You've got to try a little kindness...

You've got to try a little kindness...
