Hank Williams – Beyond The Sunset lyrics

Should you go first and I remain, to walk the road alone
Ill live in memory's garden dear, with happy days we've known
In spring i'll wait for roses red, when faith the lilacs bloom
And in early fall when brown leaves fall,
I'll catch a glimpse of you
Should you go first and I remain, for battles to be fought
Each thing you've touched along the way, will be a hallowed spot
I'll hear your voice ill see your smile
Though blindly I may grope
The memory of your helping hand, will buoy me on with hope
(c)beyond the sunset oh blissful (g)morning
When with our saviour, heaven is be(c)gun
Earths toiling ended, oh glorious (f)dawning
Beyond the (c)sunset (g)when day is (c)done
Should you go first and I remain, to finish with the scroll
No lessening shadows shall ever creep in
To make this life seem droll
We've known so much of happiness, we've had our cup of joy
And memory is one gift of god, that death cannot destroy
I want to know each step you take, that I may walk the same
For someday down that lonely road, you'll hear me call your name
Should you go first and I remain, one thing ill have you do
Walk slowly down that long long path, for soon ill follow you
(c)in that fair homeland we'll know no (f)parting
Beyond the (c)sunset (g)for ever (c)more

    Means someone else goes first and I'll remain and have memories of what that person's living meant to me. And hopefully those memories will give me hope to carry on through life's joys and sorrows. If the person didn't mean all that much to me at least I won't be so happy that I'll dance on that person's grave, but at the same time I won't be so sad that I just can't live without them. I lived just fine before I met that person, I'll live without them because I'll have to. What would they want me to do? I don't know, but I assume that they wouldn't want their departure to bother me too much. It ain't over till it's over, so they say. And that's the truth!
