White Wooden Cross

Album: Ode to Joy (2019)
  • A white wooden cross by the side of the road
    One someone lost that I did not know
    What would I do?
    What would I do?
    If a white wooden cross meant that I'd lost you

    I asked myself how would I let go?
    And a thought appeared like a morning dew
    And my blood ran cold
    My blood ran cold
    As these sad ideas passed through

    Tell me no lies
    Tell me no lies
    Is it stranger to live?
    Is it stranger to die?

    What would I do?
    What would I do?
    If a white wooden cross meant that I'd lost you

    Tell me no lies
    Tell me no lies
    Is it stranger to live?
    Is it stranger to be alive?

    For all the people that I am not
    And all their prayers and all their thoughts
    There's so much more out there
    Than here where I stand
    I blow my horn for the whole band Writer/s: Jeff Tweedy
