    In a run down ratty little two room
    on the no luck side of town,
    Sarah’s curled up cryin'
    with her baby in her arms.

    She never meant for things to turn out
    the way her mama said they would.
    Now her boyfriend’s gone,
    and she can’t go home,
    no matter how she wish she could.

    We always say the mission field’s
    across the ocean.
    We send our money over there,
    and just can’t help but smile

    We always say the mission field’s
    across the ocean
    We send our money over there,
    but who’s gonna dry her eyes?

    Miss Johnson lived her whole life
    lovin’ Jesus with a smile.
    She'd give her last dime
    if she had it,
    and had a kiss for every child

    But it seems the church forgot her
    When her husband up and died.
    She hits her knees prayin’, wonderin’
    if the food will last this time

    We always say the mission field’s
    across the ocean.
    We send our money over there,
    and wake up with a smile.

    We always say the mission fields
    across the ocean.
    We send our money over there,
    but who’s gonna dry her eyes?

    Mary’s dad knows she’s got problems,
    but he just don’t understand.
    She got a razor in her bedroom
    and you can bet she’s got a plan.

    He don’t see her soul’s been bleeding
    since her mama passed away.
    And in the dead of night she’s cryin',
    as she’s rollin’ up her sleeves.

    We always say the mission field’s
    across the ocean.
    We send our money over there,
    and just can’t help but smile

    We always say the mission field’s
    across the ocean
    We send our money over there,
    but who’s gonna dry her eyes?
