lyrics

I’m on my way... to the grave

Mother was a soul
Pure as morning snow
Every hour of
All her days

Til she wandered down
To the burial grounds
Found me there in the
Mud and rain

Time can be just a
Curse to those who want
To go back to some
Where they’ve been

But mama always said
You’ve got 2 grown legs
Walk on them up
Until the end

Higher road, Only thunderin’ pain
Lower road, Only riddles and rain

Oh mama don’t you come
To the river in the midnight sun
Or call my name to show the way
No don’t you take that ride
With the devil in the moonlit night
I’m on my way to the grave

When she come back home
That old light was gone
From her eyes, and skin
Pale white

Some say she'd been bless’d
Some said she possessed
Others say she just
Lost her mind

Elders told
Some old spirit that died
Taken hold
And it just crept on inside
