Lay off the lid of casket
They were cold
Let this river take us
Where the river knows

You were born to be my gallows
You can't kill the light
Don't lose your shadow
But in the blackest of night
Babe, we can lose all the sorrow

My baby knows
How to rock 'n roll
Bless the ash scraped bones
Up at the road

You were born to be my gallows
You can't kill the light
Don't lose your shadow
But in the blackest of night
Babe, we can lose all the sorrow

We can
We can lose all the sorrow
We can
Love, we can lose all the sorrow

Lose this sorrow
Lose this sorrow
Lose this sorrow
Lose this sorrow, ohh
