  1. Gentle

From the recording Uppity

"Gentle" is this songwriter's admission that she is finding it evermore difficult to heal from wounds caused by racism, cruelty, greed and heartbreak

Lyrics

Verse 1) I know what my cats like and I know how to type/ I know how to read and write, but I don't know how to mend/ I know how a scale goes and I know how to rhyme/ I know how a song flows, but I don't know how to mend
Chorus) Gentle/ Gentle/ Be Gentle to this old heart/ Patient/ Patient/ Be patient with this sad heart
Verse 2) Who can say if life goes on just like it did before/ It doesn't feel like it can 'cause I don't know how to mend/ Sally forth and carry on with a rigid upper lip/ Steady as she goes, girl/ Get up if you should trip/ Easier said than to do after the heart is rent/ All the lives this cat had surely must be spent
Oh with a little patience/ Oh with a little time/ Oh with a little patience/ Oh with a little time
Gentle/ Gentle/ Be gentle with this old heart/ Patient/ Patient/ Be patient with this sad heart
