Bye Bye, So Long

Mama, I think you're right - I'm going home
I don't like these widow's weeds
And I'm too young to be alone
Light a candle, say a prayer for me
Light a candle and set me free

 

Bye bye, so long - Naomi don't you cry
Farewell, be strong - Jordan River divides

 

Been a long time since I've seen my kin
My brothers will be grown
But they'll take their big sister in
Until I find me a new home.
Light a candle, say a prayer for me
Light a candle and set me free

 

Bye bye, so long - Naomi don't you cry
Farewell, be strong - Jordan River divides

 

Gonna miss your gentle ways
And your laughing voice
When I recall our happy days -
But I've got no other choice
So Light a candle, say a prayer for me
Light a candle and set me free

 

Bye bye, so long - Naomi don't you cry
Farewell, be strong - Jordan River, Jordan River
Jordan River divides
