walking in a line lyrics – grey delisle


can you hear the north wind wailin’
wailin’ for what lay in store
death has come to take our mother
brought the fever to our door

can you hear the babes a cryin’
cryin’ for a piece of bread
our dear mother gives no answer
she lay dyin’ in her bed

can you hear our daddy prayin’
layin’ hands upon her brow
gone and took up with that woman
there’s no mercy for him now

can you hear the gospel ringin’
ringin’ softly through the pines
death has taken our dear mother
we are walking in a line
