Come Love Come

Rhiannon Giddens
Language: English



Come love come, the road lies low
The way is long and hard I know
Come love come, the road lies free
I'll wait for you in Tennessee

When I was four my loving mam
Was cornered by the boss's man
She turned her head and got struck down
They buried her in the cold cold ground

Come love come, the road lies low
The way is long and hard I know
Come love come, the road lies free
I'll wait for you in Tennessee

When I was twelve my father dear
Was strong of arm and free of fear
Until the day he raised his hand
Then he was sold to Alabam'

Come love come, the road lies low
The way is long and hard I know
Come love come, the road lies free
I'll wait for you in Tennessee

I was sixteen found my bloom
And found my man, we jumped the broom
We pledged each other the rest of our lives
And on Saturday nights we were man and wife

Come love come, the road lies low
The way is long and hard I know
Come love come, the road lies free
I'll wait for you in Tennessee

I was eighteen, bugles called
The boys in blue came o'er the wall
I took my chance and followed free
They led the way to Tennessee

Come love come, the road lies low
The way is long and hard I know
Come love come, the road lies free
I'll wait for you in Tennessee

Here I sit in a tiny shack
With thirteen others at my back
I've sent you word, so all I can do
Is wait, and wait, and wait, and wait, and wait...
And wait for you

Come love come, the road lies low
The way is long and hard I know
Come love come, the road lies free
I'll wait for you in Tennessee

Come love come, the road lies low
The way is long and hard I know
Come love come, the road lies free
I'll wait for you in Tennessee

I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you...
