I was standin' by the bedside of a sister
 Who was just about to cross that swellin' tide
 And I asked her if she would do me a favor
 And kindly take this message to the other side
 Well, if you see my savior tell him that you saw me
 And when you saw me I was on my way
 You may meet some boyfriends who may ask about me
 You tell 'em I am a comin' home someday
 I was standin' by the bedside of a sister
 Who was just about to cross that swellin' tide
 And I asked her if she would do me a favor
 And kindly take this message to the other side
 Well you may have to make this journey on without me
 Sooner or later, sooner or later it's a debt that must be paid
 When you reach that goal that's when you'll think about me
 But don't forget to tell my savior what I said
 I was standin' by the bedside of a sister
 Who was just about to cross that swellin' tide
 And I asked her if she would do me a favor
 And kindly take this message to the other side
