Levon Helm – Wide River To Cross lyrics

There's a sorrow in the wind
Blowing down the road I've been
I can hear it cry while shadows steal the sun

But I cannot look back now
I've come too far to turn around
And there's still a race ahead that I must run

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, find the things I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

I have stumbled, I have strayed
You can trace the tracks I made
All across the memories my heart recalls
But I'm still a refugee, won't you say a prayer for me?
'Cause sometimes even the strongest soldier falls

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, I'll find the things I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, I'll find the things that I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

    I watched about half of it not long ago, Gayle, and it was very good, wasn't it. Hope it comes back on so I can see the first part of it, or maybe buy the dvd one day. One of the best music dvds I have ever seen is a documentary on the Band called The Last Waltz, has a concert they did way back when, as well as commentary and interviews with the members, and had other people on like Bob Dylan and Van Morrison.
