River Bed

Standard

Baby, put your head on me
Lay down and start to dream
Let the wind be your melody
Close your eyes
And believe

 

Times will get easier
As the days go by
Simple songs and quiet words
The ways to make you cry
On your back, we’ll go down
On that river bed
So come with me, darlin’,
And lay down your head

 

Honey, I know
The world seems to be getting a little darker
Times are getting tough
And the air grows colder
And it won’t get any better –
‘Till the night-time is over
But grimace through your whiskey
And take my hand
We’ll brave the ocean blue until we see land

 

Times will get easier
As the days go by
Simple songs and quiet words
The poems that made you cry
Push down your suitcase
With the bible you never read
So come with me, darlin’,
And lay down your head.

Honey, these days will go by –
Like seconds on a clock
One more time to worry
One more wayward thought
All those hymnals you sang
And all those verses you were taught
But just take my hand, and we’ll go down
Across that river bed
It’ll be okay, darling –
Just rest your weary head.
