When the sun is going down
And the nighttime blots you eyes
And I don’t know where I am
Will you call me to your side?

Baby I love you, and I want you to be alright
Maybe I need you, honey, to help me through the night
Nobody tells you how to do it
Nobody else is going through it
Nobody else can understand
And I, I need you tonight

When the rain is coming down
And the river flowing hard
And our love begins to drown
Will you pull me up somehow?
Will you pull me up somehow?

Baby I love you, and I want you to be alright
Maybe I need you, honey, to help me through the night
Nobody tells you how to do it
Nobody else is going through it
Nobody else can understand
And I, I need you tonight

Oh take me to the holy water
Baby, and baptize me
Let me hear the singers singing, “We’ll shall be set free”
Take me to the Mississippi River
Baby, and bury me
In the holy water there for all eternity

Baby I love you, and I want you to be alright
Maybe I need you, honey, to help me through the night
Nobody tells you how to do it
Nobody else is going through it
Nobody else can understand
And I, I need you tonight
I need you tonight
I need you tonight
I need you tonight
I need you tonight
