lyrics

BEFORE I GO

tonight our thoughts are tied together
my friend could we put we put our hearts together
the house is old and empty put your arms around me
could we take the time
and can we be honest and kind
i feel sure we will try our best tonight

welcome welcome friendly stranger
put your worries down on my kitchen table
come inside before the snow
and let me love you before I go

and if it’s cold tonight take my old sweater
we’ll go out on the porch and sit together
i have a song to sing you I hope that it will bring you
many more inside
tomorrow we’ll go for a drive i got wheels
we can ride through the country fields in the morning

welcome welcome familiar stranger
come and tell your story at my kitchen table
tell me where you’ve been my brother
i’m sure it’s a place that I know
come let me love you before I go
