You may remember this song from our last album. It sounds nice on these instruments as well though and has matured a little since we last recorded it.
Come Jacob, come Liza, no time for to waste
And follow me down to the cold river's banks
Where I left dear Pappy wet up to his waist
singing "Carry me home on the morrow."
He tore off his gold watch, and his clothes he threw in,
to the river below him and though he can't swim
He cast off the boots that had long carried him, saying
"I've no more weight left to borrow"
"My dearest son Daniel, come bring me my wine,
my bread and mine fancies, for their fate as mine,
rest on these cold waves dancing out to the sea,
that will carry me home on the morrow."
But dear Joseph daddy, oh what can you mean?
Our home it lies westward cross holler and stream
Where wait for you Lily and Liza's new son
Why for deal their hearts such a sorrow?"
"Oh my dear son Daniel I've grown so old
and loved you each day but there's naught left to hold
So bring me my best mule, to plunge neath the cold
water carry me home on the morrow."
"Now won't you bring me my Love for you, here to my side
bring my Worry for Jacob and for Liza my Pride,
set the also beneath these dark channels to hide
for to pass through that water door" Oh
And he beckoned me down to the bank's bone white sands
called his wife and his daughter, his own grandson and
came they all, swept away by the river's cold hand
that will carry me home on the morrow.
