Carry Me Across the Mountain
- 56 Views
Every day is a gamble, if you really want to make it through When you live on the side of the mountain, and the babies all need food I was the youngest one among us, I got sick and would not eat Daddy prayed accept his fate, but Mommy would not heed [Chorus] Carry me across the mountain, before it is too late Heal my broken my body, death not be my fate Carry me across the mountain, don't give up on me I am but a helpless child, whose life depends on thee Daddy warned against it, said you may not make it through Momma wrapped me in her arms, crying what else can I do There is a place across the mountain top, across the mountain side They say there is a doctor there, might save our baby's life [Chorus] Now I stand upon the mountain top, before my mother's grave And every year I visit here, to thank her for that day Carry me across the mountain, before it is too late Heal my broken my body, death not be my fate Carry me across the mountain, don't give up on me
