Bad Religion – Sorrow – Regular and Acoustic

When I watched the movie The Other F Word I found a song that they played that I hadn’t previously heard before and quite enjoyed. It was called Sorrow, sung by Greg Graffin of Bad Religion. I really liked the acoustic version, but had to seek out the punk one too for comparisons sake. So, as a quickie post, I have posted the lyrics, (and interestingly enough, the acoustic version does not include the first verse) and both versions here for you to check out, should that type of thing float your boat:

Acoustic version of Sorrow:

Father, can you hear me?

How have I let you down?

I curse the day that I was born

And all the sorrow in this world

Let me take you to the herding ground

Where all good men are trampled down

Just to settle a bet that could not be won

Between a prideful father and his son

Will you guide me now, for I can’t see

A reason for the suffering and this long misery

What if every living soul could be upright and  strong

Well, then I do  imagine

There will be  sorrow

Yeah, there will be  sorrow

And there will be sorrow no  more

When all soldiers lay  their weapons down

Or when all  kings and all queens relinquish their crowns

Or  when the only true Messiah rescues us from ourselves

It’s easy to imagine

There  will be sorrow

Yeah, there will be  sorrow

And there will be sorrow no  more

There will be  sorrow

Yeah, there will be  sorrow

And there will be  sorrow no more

Yeah,  there will be sorrow

Yeah, there  will be sorrow

And there will be  sorrow no more
