As you lie before me now, like a shadow On a pea green sea Never thought that I could find you so hollow Laying into me But this cup of wine All salt and brine makes me sleepy And sorrow sows A field of tears that will never yield a single penny But I don't know I've got nothing to hold on to Wished for gold so I could buy you a palace By the riverside You'd come in and I would fill your diamond chalice You were still alive But this cup of wine All salt and brine makes me sleepy And sorrow sows A field of tears that will never yield a single penny But I don't know I've got nothing to hold on to I've got nothing to hold on to Were you sleepless, tearing at the air? Was the water everywhere? Were you fretful, to wade into the room? I'd been wanting to hear from you Oh, no Hand it over (hand it over) Hand it over (oh) You're weary, lay him down You did your time so thank you very much Hand it over (hand it over) Hand it over (oh) So now your hopes are all allayed But you hand it all away Did his eyelids affix on empty chairs You had traveled to lay beside? A gentle torture to watch it all recede And all the while your mother slept beside him Oh, no Hand it over (hand it over) Hand it over (oh) You're weary, lay him down You did your time so thank you very much Hand it over (hand it over) Hand it over (oh) So now your hopes are all allayed But you hand it all away Were you sleepless, tearing at the air? Was the water everywhere? Were you fearful, and long to run away From the cold clasp of Illinois? Oh, no Hand it over (hand it over) Hand it over (oh) You're weary, lay him down You did your time so thank you very much Hand it over (hand it over) Hand it over (oh) So now your hopes are all allayed But you hand it all away But you hand it all away
