DEAD RIVER

All along the river of misery and woe
I`m ridin` through the darkness and I`m feelin` low
All along the highway of trouble and strife
The highway I have travelled most of my life

Where will it end ?
This journey of trials
Tell me my friend
Where will it end ?

Way over yonder I will lay me down
And sleep forever sleep

Boots of coal black leather with silver spurs so bright
I`m ridin` through the badlands in the dead of the night
Ridin` through the desert, ridin` through the sand
But will I ever reach the promised land ?

Where do they end ?
These days of depression
Tell me my friend
Where do they end ?

Way over yonder I will lay me down
And sleep forever sleep

One of these mornings dreary and cold
I`m going to the mountain where I can rest my soul
No longer will I suffer, no longer be a slave
My soul belongs to Heaven, my body to my grave

I`m going where
there ain`t no depression
And no more trials
I`m going there

Way over yonder I will lay me down

And sleep forever sleep
