"When My Love Crosses Over" as written by and John Hiatt....
Made a pact
Lying there on our backs
Swearing to every star that the sky did hold
Promising our love was true
Promising to see it through
Then we headed due southwest across the Muscle Shoals

We slid down a riverbank in the pouring rain
Giving thanks for the strength just to carry on through the fog and the cold
There at the water's edge
She tugged my arm, and I nodded my head
Just one more step, and that river took ahold

When my love crosses over, I'm coming over, too
To cross that mighty river that's before us to the new western world
Mountains high and plain unfurled
Desert stretching out to touch the Californias

We said we'd never look back
We never have, and that's a fact
That Mississippi washed us clean down to the bone
The journey's been long, my friend
Hell, you never know what state you're in
Yeah, but the unknown is always the unknown

I lost track of you awhile
But you were waiting for me with a smile
Made me feel like a little child with a brand-new view
Let's do it all over, babe
It'd just be another trip we made
When my love crosses over, I'm coming too
