What Are We Gonna Do Now?

Diamond Rio

Band/Artist: Diamond Rio

Album: The Reason

Glenn Weekly cut a path deep and wide
He taught us well ‘bout how to live this life
Now he’s gone

I was thinking as they laid him in the ground
Oh, ain’t everyday that a giant comes around
I’m gonna miss him
I recall the words he spoke so many times
What matters most of all is what you leave behind
And with these words he laid the gauntlet down
What are we gonna do now

We can show some love and find some grace
Make this world a better
Take the walls we’ve built and tear them down
We can leave behind a legacy
Change the course of history
Time has placed the future in our hands
What are we gonna do now

The book tells of a man, traveled town to town
Spreading good news of love all around
Then he was gone
Oh, still we are confronted by the truth he left
We’ve got to learn to love our neighbors as ourselves
And with these words he laid the gauntlet down
What are we gonna do now

We can leave behind a legacy
Change the course of history
Time has placed the future in our hands
What are we gonna do now

Forever on the pages there in red
That’s where you need to live your life
Brother Weekly always said
It’s not enough to just believe
You’ve got to practice what you preach
Oh, what are we gonna do now

What are we gonna do
What are we gonna do now

We can leave behind a legacy
Change the course of history
Time has placed the future in our hands
What are we gonna do now
What are we gonna do now
What are we gonna do now
