lyrics

If I leave this earthly body
years before I'm due
would you stay up weeping for me?
would your love for me remain true?

and if the whiskey took me to an early grave
'neath the trestle on some bygone creek?
or if I was weak and lonely,
and cast along the dark side of the street...

no one would blame the water
that carried my body away
no one would blame the seasons
for wearing down on an old oak tree
and just like the last ray of warm sunshine
when I die I know I'll live again

and if love is ever changing
and given strong lungs to breathe
don't begrudge the cause of my leaving
don't you carry no burden or shame
and if ever you should seek to find me again
in the distance, on the lay of the land
you can look for me out on the highest cliff
by the swell of the sea so grand

no one would blame the water
that carried my body away
no one would blame the seasons
for wearing down on an old oak tree
and just like the last ray of warm sunshine
when I die I know I'll live again
