Leave Me Praying (mp3)

This song appeared in the Dave and Tim 1997 tour as a slight evolution from the 1996 Dave and Tim song known as "Weight of the World." During 1997, the song became widely known as "Weight of the World / Leave Me Praying". For the purposes of distinction, we designate "Weight of the World" as the original 1996 incarnation and "Leave Me Praying" as the incarnation from 1997 until its evolution into "Don't Drink the Water" during the Before These Crowded Streets studio sessions. All versions of the song contain a lyrical interpolation of "This Land Is Your Land," which has since surfaced in many versions of "Don't Drink the Water."
