John Kay — Dance To My Song lyrics

Words and music by John Kay

And we carried him down the hollow
Where we laid his kind soul down to rest
Then we sang until the dawn just to him memory
And found these words to be his last request...

When my time draws nigh stay near me
And when I die will you dance to my song
When I'm gone won't you come and cheer me
On my journey back home where I belong

Now how could he know
Just where he would go
And what did he see that made him run so free
And why do I feel, that's he's far away and right beside me still

In the night somebody touched me
And the sea rolled out his name
While I thought of all our times together
His echo keeps callin' back again...

When my time draws nigh stay near me
And when I die will you dance to my song
When I'm gone won't you come and cheer me
On my journey back home where I belong

And we carried him down the hollow
Where we laid his kind soul down to rest
Then we sang until the dawn just to him memory
And found these words to be his last request...

When my time draws nigh stay near me
And when I die will you dance to my song
When I'm gone won't you come and cheer me
On my journey back home where I belong

Now how could he know
Just where he would go
And what did he see that made him run so free
And why do I feel, that's he's far away and right beside me still

In the night somebody touched me
And the sea rolled out his name
While I thought of all our times together
His echo keeps callin' back again...

When my time draws nigh stay near me
And when I die will you dance to my song
When I'm gone won't you come and cheer me
On my journey back home where I belong
