Single Release June 1, 20221

If I should die before I get old
Before I get old and grey
Carry me down to the river
Let it carry me away

If I should die before it’s my time
Before it’s my time to leave
You won’t hear that ol’ devil laughin’
I got a few tricks up my sleeve

Gather ‘round and sing songs of redemption
I know that you’ll find sweet comfort there
Bring your guitar
Sing Jimmy, Cash and Dillon
Sages and the prophets down in the easychair
And we’ll rest easy

And should our bed grow too cold
Grow too cold to sleep
Cut down our favorite kissing tree
And light a fire under me
Then we’ll look across at Detroit City
Remember how the smoke rose in the night
She rises up oh so strong and pretty
Out of darkness, into splendid light
And we’ll rest easy
