don't let the light go out...


winters coming you can see it in the light
when i woke up this morning it was the middle of the night
and i got that feeling when the autumn wind starts to blow
well i guess i better get something stashed
the future is coming gonna be here fast
that’s what they all say i got the rest of my days to go

this little boy he ain’t half bad
i really like the way he looks when he gets a little mad
but i never can teach him everything he’s gonna know
i worry about the apple and i worry about the tree
but i know that he’ll grow up to be bigger than me
i hope and i pray he got plenty of days to go

and oh my darling she’s so fine
but i only get to see her in the twilight time
i love her so bad i just hope that it shows
though i wonder every now and then
if she could do it all over would she do it again
but that’s for her to say she got plenty of days to go

some of my friends are getting scared
they running for the border got their hands up in the air
but if you hit that wall nowhere to run to, no
take a little comfort have no fear
if you're gonna face down the devil you better do it right here
or he might get away with plenty of days to go

when the wind is strange and nothing’s right
what is it that you reach for in the middle of the night?
does it reach right back whisper soft and low
and if that wind should blow all night
just come a little closer it’ll be alright
it’s gonna be ok we got the rest of our days to go
