Iris Dement – When My Mornin' Comes Around lyrics

When my mornin' comes around, no one else will be there
So I won't have to worry about what I'm supposed to say
And I alone will know that I climbed that great big mountain
And that's all that will matter when my mornin' comes around

When my mornin' comes around, I will look back on this valley
At these sidewalks and alleys where I lingered for so long
And this place where I now live will burn to ash and cinder
Like some ghost I won't remember
When my mornin' comes around

When my mornin' comes around, from a new cup I'll be drinking
And for once I won't be thinking that there's something wrong with me
And I'll wake up and find that my faults have been forgiven
And that's when I'll start living
When my mornin' comes around
