You can have the day
on the restless tides you play
And I will lay among the pines till the night comes rolling in

Can't you see them blackhead girls
They put their heels into the world
They try to hold their lover's strings as the night comes rolling in

And every time I leave the south, a word it stumbles from my mouth
Amen
Amen
Amen
'cause the night comes rolling in

God must pull on the string
so the moon can rise and sink
for every child and every beast, there's the night comes rolling in

And the trees they sway and weep
that sun must go to sleep
so the crow can fly me to my love, and the night comes rolling in

And every time I leave the South a word it stumbles from my mouth
Amen
Amen
Amen
'cause the night comes rolling in
