Darlin' Kate

Album: Hard Bargain (2011)
  • So it's finally come,
    You have left this world,
    But we'll miss our Kate,
    Our darling girl!
    We held your hand,
    Kissed your lovely brow,
    And bid farewell
    You're sailing now

    Free from the pain
    You laid that burden down,
    But you're strong and giving heart,
    Will surely be your crown

    As you slip the surly bonds of earth
    And sail away
    Perhaps we will meet again
    Somehow, some day

    Until then, there's nothing we can do but wait,
    To see once more,
    Our darling Kate

    All those nights we sang
    And talked 'til the sun come up,
    You fed our souls,
    You filled our cup
    With your perfect words
    And oh that voice,
    We fell in love,
    We had no choice.

    And I can't say
    For sure where you have gone,
    But in that place
    I'm bettin' there's a better song

    For we've all known down here,
    The taste of joy and strife
    You were the sweetest note
    In the chord of life.

    Now you've slipped the surly bonds of earth,
    And sailed away
    Perhaps we will meet again
    Somehow, some day
    But if there was one name I could consecrate
    It would be yours
    It would be KateWriter/s: EMMYLOU HARRIS
