lyrics

Oh Lord, i miss that girl
buried by the live oak tree;
her headstone holds down the skin of the earth,
wanting to crawl away

the night is black
the air is cold
i want her back
in my arms, once more to hold

the whole night through,
the whippoorwill cries out her mournful song,
heralding my anguish to the Angel of Death;
yes, it's the saddest of songs

the night is black
the air is cold
i want her back
in my arms, once more to hold

Oh Lord, please heed my prayer,
i beg your gracious release;
please reunite my spirit with hers,
i pray for this night to end

the night is black
the air is cold
i want her back
in my arms, once more to hold
