Mickey Newbury - "Let Me Sleep" lyrics

Walk me through the blindin' snow
Take me where the sun won't go
Shallow waters never flow
Slowly to the sea

Walk me through the dry hot sand
Steal my cup but fill my hand
Leave me where the valley can
Rock my soul back to sleep

Where the mighty winds lie still
Ever silence on the hill
Cradled by the mountain til
The Father welcomes me

And lay me down in the verdent green
At the breast of the mother spring
With a song that I can sing
One that I can keep
Let me sleep
