D A V I D E S S I G LYRICS: TRACKS FROM "INTO THE LOWERING SKY"
Into the Lowering Sky     E

Section 1
I'm cold and tired and foresaken -
ashamed of the life that I've lived
I fall in the path that I've taken -
it's the price I must pay for the life that I've lived

All of friends now have left me -
I wander this desert alone
Dark is the pathway that carries -
me far from my heavenly home

Refrain
I stand at the gate of salvation -
and beg for my father to forgive
He said, look what you've done -
I've given you my son
It's the price I must pay - for the life that you've lived

Section 2

Drunk and lonesome is its own reward
Put my faith in a different lord
One hand on the bottle - one up her dress
Pray to heaven for some sweet success

Now I'm not ashamed of what I've done
Face down in the grass in the noonday sun
Don't ask Jesus what he would do
'Cause Mary was his momma and his girlfriend too
(repeat last lines)

Section 3
repeat part of Section 1

Section 4 (goes to slow 3/4)

I am on my way back to the garden at last -
the son who is kept from the door
Never stray too far from the edge of the glass -
Never wander too far from the shore
