Carry Me Across the Mountain Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Every day is a gamble, if you really want to make it through
When you live on the side of the mountain, and the babies all need food
I was the youngest one among us, I got sick and would not eat
Daddy prayed accept his fate, but Mommy would not heed
Verse 0
[Chorus]
Carry me across the mountain, before it is too late
Heal my broken my body, death not be my fate
Carry me across the mountain, don't give up on me
I am but a helpless child, whose life depends on thee
Verse 2
Daddy warned against it, said you may not make it through
Momma wrapped me in her arms, crying what else can I do
There is a place across the mountain top, across the mountain side
They say there is a doctor there, might save our baby's life
Verse 3
[Chorus]
Verse 4
Now I stand upon the mountain top, before my mother's grave
And every year I visit here, to thank her for that day
Verse 5
Carry me across the mountain, before it is too late
Heal my broken my body, death not be my fate
Carry me across the mountain, don't give up on me
