Song To John

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the compilation Anchored in Love: A Tribute to June Carter Cash (2007).

I tried to remember the things that are precious to you
And I'd give you money if that would do
But money won't do it, that's not your way
Your money is been for givin' away

Now, if you precede me and go to your grave
And the Angels knock the clouds about
When Jesus comes to save
I'll be standing there to rise with you and to go up, as you do

And I'll always love you, you'll always be mine
Forever and always till the end of time
Till the mountain split open with the weight of the sun
We'll rise up together as one

So I let my hair hang down, 'cause that's the way you like it
And I'll keep myself neat and nice for you
And I'll have good food on your table
And I'll keep your house in order

And I'll pray for you
For your wisdom and understanding and your charity
And even if you've been wrong and I've known it
You've always been right because that's Gods order

And I'll always love you, you'll always be mine
Forever and always till the end of time
Till the mountain split open with the weight of the sun
We'll rise up together as one

And I will smile for you and I'll be kind
And I'll love your babies, just as I've loved mine
And when I could give you nothing
God blessed me and I gave you a son

And I'll always love you, you'll always be mine
Forever and always till the end of time
Till the mountain split open with the weight of the sun
We'll rise up together as one
