Tift Merritt – When I Cross Over lyrics

I don't want to talk to nobody,
Don't want to make no plans,
I'm so tired of this party,
I've had all my laughs.

I'll send you something when I cross over,
Something when I cross over.
I'll send you something when I cross over,
When I'm where I'm going.

I get in a good mood just thinkin' about it,
All those streets I've never seen,
Nobody asking me for nothing,
Nobody angry with me.


Not even gonna take my Pontiac,
What do I need it for?
Not gonna run away from nothing,
I won't be tangled up no more.


Seems like a woman in the morning
Oughta have nothing to worry about,
Sit down and have a cup of coffee,
Hum a little while, think out loud.

I'm not gonna hang up any pictures,
No numbers taped to the wall,
Suitcase gonna get a little lighter,
I'm gonna unpack all alone.
