Oh, my soul
Sometimes we don't know what to do
We work so hard
Being tough on our own
But now it's me and you
Let's give it up
Sad bones
Cause we all fall on hard times
But you don't have to stand up all alone
Just put your hand in mine

Climb on
A back that's strong
Hey hey
You can git' what you want
Climb on
A back that's strong

If you could save me
A place in heaven
With a clean well-lighted room
I'll muscle up to Armageddon
And I'll wave to you darlin'
Be home soon
And if you could show me
The story of love
I would write it
Again and again
And then you could be
The woman you need
If you just let me be
The man that I am

Oh, I don't know
Sometimes we try too hard to see
But we got one down now
One more to go
That's when you say
To me
