Oh well tonight when
I lay me down
Oh well lord I'm going home
Back to that river
Back to my brother oh lord
I may no longer be alone

Now in my life I've
I've had few comforts
And ones I did I pushed aside
But now I'm going
Back home to Jesus oh lord
Drowning in the river wide

I've had some friends
Out on this road
Who have given me a helping hand
Oh and I know I
I can't repay them oh lord
But I know they will understand

So gather round boys
This here's the last time
You're gonna see me in one piece
So put a kiss
Upon my lips oh boys
And then send me off to sleep

Oh well tonight when
I lay me down
Oh well lord I'm going home
Back to that river
Back to my brother oh lord
I may no longer be alone
I may no longer be alone
