YOUR LONG JOURNEY
Emmylou Harris


(D. Watson/R. L. Watson)

God's given us years of happiness here
Now we must part
And as the angels come and call for you
The pains of grief tug at my heart

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

Oh the days will be empty
The nights so long without you my love
And when God calls for you I'm left alone
But we willmeet in heaven above

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

Fond memories i'll keep of happy ways
That on earth we trod
And when I come we will walk hand in hand
As one in Heaven in the family of God

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey
