Dan Peek recorded a version of this song with America in 1974 where the song peaked at #5 and then he re-wrote song of the lyrics and released it again as a Christian song in 1986 where it reached #1. Dan and his wife both wrote the song. 

He thought that Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles was a real downer type song for humanity, and decided to write a song that up-lifted humanity instead and this song was that song.

Lonely People Guitar Lesson Lyrics

This is for all the lonely people
Thinking that life has passed them by
Don't give up until you - drink from the silver cup
And ride that highway in the sky

This is for all the single people
Thinking that love has left them dry
Don't give up until you - drink from the silver cup
You never know until you try

Well, I'm on my way - Yes, I'm back to stay
Well, I'm on my way back home (Hit it)

This is for all the lonely people
Thinking that life has passed them by
Don't give up until you - drink from the silver cup
And never take you down or - never give you up
You never know until you try
