Billy Joe Shaver – Live Forever lyrics

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now
You're gonna wanna hold me
Just like I've always told you
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

Nobody here will ever find me
But I will always be around
Just like the songs I leave behind me
I'm gonna live forever now

You fathers and you mothers
Be good to one another
Please try to raise your children right
Don't let the darkness take 'em
Don't make 'em feel forsaken
Just lead 'em safely to the light

When this old world is blown assunder
And all the stars fall from the sky
Remember someone really loves you
We'll live forever you and I

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever now
I'm gonna live forever now
I'm gonna live forever now
I'm gonna live forever now

Dream of angels and sunshine
Rivers of red wine and orange peel moon
Dream of angels and sunshine
Of rivers of red wine and orange peel moon
Dreaming of you

    Billy Joe Shaver holds onto his Christian beliefs of eternal life though his fast lifestyle caused him to stumble many times. His songs will live on as well after he is gone which keeps him alive in a sense of the lessons he learned and then passed along in lyrics. He did not raise his son due to being a road musician but connected later when his son Eddie was grown. Eddie had become an accomplished guitarist and joined up with Billy Joe creating some powerful performances. Shaver's ex-wife passed away then Eddie died of an overdose. Billy Joe one day stood at their graves and was so overwhelmed with grief he thought he was going to lose his sanity. He came back around and returned to doing what he does best-singing, writing and being a Texan. He will live forever. A duet with his son can tell you more, it is called "Blood Is Thicker Than Water" and it pulls no punches.

    I never heard this song until joe ely recorded it. It makes me think of my father and sounds like it could be his words. He died on 2010 and was the patriarch of our large family always reaching out to the younger generation and giving advice to parents. His last words were to ask for assistance for a great-great granddaughter after not speaking coherently for three days. Then, when a granddaughter flew with his ashes so he could be buried next to his wife, his ashes were stolen along with a coach bag tucked from view because we were entering a restaurant and hesitant to violate possible heath codes.
    Almost every word fits his personality and attempts to comfort those left behind.
