George Strait---I'll See You On The Other Side

Music 4 You

Sunset Over Water

Well, hope is an anchor and love is a ship:
Time is the ocean an' life is a trip.
You don't know where you're goin' till you know where you're at,
And if you can't read the stars, well, you better have a map:
A compass and a conscience so you don't get lost at sea,
Around some old lonely island where no one wants to be.

From the beginning of creation, I think our Maker had plan,
For us to leave these shores and sail beyond the sand.
An' let the Good Light guide us through the waves and the wind,
To the beaches in a world where we have never been.
And we'll climb up on the mountain, y'all: we'll let our voices ring,
When those who've never tried it, they'll be the first to sing.

    Whoa, my, my:
    I'll see you on the other side if I make it.
    And it might be a long hard ride but I'm gonna take it.
    Sometimes it seems that I don't have a prayer:
    I let the weather take me anywhere,
    But I know that I wanna go where the streets are gold,
    'Cause you'll be there.
    Oh, my, my.

Well, you don't bring nothin' with you here and you can't take nothin' back.
I ain't never seen a hearse with a luggage rack.
So I've torn my knees up prayin', scarred my back from fallin' down.
Spent so much time flyin' high, till I'm face first in the ground.
So if you're up there watchin' me, would you talk to God and say:
Tell him I might need a hand to see you both some day.

    Oh, my, my:
    So I'll see you on the other side if I make it.
    And it might be a long hard ride but I wanna take it.
    Sometimes it seems that I don't have a prayer:
    I let the weather take me anywhere,
    But I know that I wanna go where the streets are gold,
    'Cause you'll be there. (You'll be there.)
    Oh, my, my.
    'Cause you'll be there. (You'll be there.)
    Oh, my, my.
