Bobby Plough: Music

Open Up Your Heart

(Bobby Plough)
Robert Joseph Plough
There came a call from across the land
Some Canadian mares need a helping hand
It got me thinking on a crisp October day

Once prosperous contracts null and void
Working mares now unemployed
Have I land enough for one to freely roam?

So I searched my soul as the pictures flipped
Til I came across a foal named Lil Skip
Then I knew I had to give that colt a home

Won’t you open up your heart and lend a hand?
They’re all God’s children I hope you understand
There are mares, foals, and stallions too
Whose fate could change because of me and you

The plan was set, preparations made
The deal was signed, donations paid
I’m waiting by the phone for the final shipping news

His journey starts a long way from here
They say they’re shipping out when the snow gets cleared
I’m praying every night to bring him safely home

Now I’m off to Virginia, gonna make that ride
Meet my new friend, my new ally
Start a journey of Love, Language, and Leadership

Won’t you open up your heart and lend a hand?
They’re all God’s children I hope you understand
There are mares, foals, and stallions too
Whose fate could change because of me and you
Whose fate could change because of me and you
