I walked into the bedroom

On a rainy afternoon

And I heard her say to me

Not a moment too soon

 

She said child don’t you worry

I will always be with you

From the way she looked at me

I believed it to be true when she said

When she said

 

I’m ready to close my eyes

Steady and hold tight

I’m gonna be crossing over

To heaven and the great divide and I

 

I’m ready to close my eyes

Heavy and so wide

I can feel it pull me under

Steady as the rising tide

 

Take me to the water

By the road that leads you down

And lay me down

 

It was early in the evening

She gave all that she could give

And I felt her leaving me

But I learned how to live when

She said, when she said

 

I’m ready to close my eyes

Steady and hold tight

I’m gonna be crossing over

To heaven and the great divide and I

 

I’m ready to close my eyes

They’re heavy and so wide

I can feel it pull me under

Steady as the rising tide

 

Take me to the water

By the road that leads you down

And lay me down

Lay me down

 

I’m ready to close my eyes

Steady and hold tight

I’m gonna be crossing over

To heaven and the great divide and I

 

I’m ready to close my eyes

They’re heavy and so wide

I can feel it pull me under

Steady as the rising tide

 

Take me to the water

By the road that leads you down

Take me to the water

Scatter me around

Take me to the water

By the road that leads you down

Take me to the water

Scatter me around

Take me to the water

By the road that leads you down

 

And lay me down

Lay me down
