Row Us Over the Tide

This song is by The Blue Sky Boys and appears on the compilation American Roots: A History of American Folk Music (1999).

Two little children were strolling one day
Down by the river side
One stepped up to the boatman and said
Please row us over the tide

Row us over the tide
Row us over the tide
Papa and Mama have gone on before
Please row us over the tide

Mama told poor little Charlie one day
Jesus would come walk her child
We are so tired and hungry and poor
Please row us over the tide

Row us over the tide
Row us over the tide
Papa and Mama have gone on before
Please row us over the tide

Papa and mama and sister are gone
Please row us over the tide
We are so tired of waiting so long
Please row us over the tide

Row us over the tide
Row us over the tide
Papa and Mama have gone on before
Please row us over the tide

Jesus who done by the rich and the poor
Answer the little one's cry
Took them to heaven to sorrow no more
Row them over the tide

Row them over the tide
Row them over the tide
Took them to heaven where love wants to dwell
Row them over the tide
