"A Better Place to Be"

I Know You Rider


Goin to plant a weeping willow On the banks green edge it will grow grow grow Sing a lullaby beside the water Lovers come and go but the river roll roll roll

As we rode out to fennario, as we rode on to fennario
Our captain fell in love with a lady like a dove
And he called her by name, pretty peggy-o.

Will you marry me pretty peggy-o, will you marry me pretty peggy-o
If you will marry me, i'll set your cities free
And free all the ladies in the are-o.

I would marry you sweet william-o, i would marry you sweet william-o
I would marry you but your guineas are too few
And i fear my mama would be angry-o.

What would your mama think pretty peggy-o,
What would your mama think pretty peggy-o,
What would your mama think if she heard my guineas clink
Saw me marching at the head of my soldiers.

If ever i return pretty peggy-o, if ever i return pretty peggy-o
If ever i return your cities i will burn
Destroy all the ladies in the area-o.

Come steppin' down the stairs pretty peggy-o,
Come steppin' down the stairs pretty peggy-o,
Come steppin' down the stairs combin' back your yellow hair
Bid a last farewell to your william-o.

Sweet William he is dead pretty peggy-o, sweet William he is dead pretty peggy-o,
Sweet william he is dead and he died for a maid

And he's buried in the louisiana country-o.

As we rode out to fennario, as we rode out to fennario
Our captain fell in love with a lady like a dove,
And he called her by name, pretty peggy-o.

When I think about my life
I wonder if I will survive
To live to see 25
Or will I just fall?
Like all my friends
They just keep dying
People round me
Always crying
In this place that I like to
Call my home

But not everybody knows
That everybody goes
To a better place
And not everybody knows
That everybody could be living their last days
But the hard times will come
and we'll keep movin' on
We're moving on
Keep movin' on

Life!
Hope!
Truth!
Trust!
Faith!
Pride!
Love!
Lust!

On without the things we've lost
The things we gained
We'll take with us
And all I've got
Are these two hands
To make myself
A better man, I
Wonder if I'll ever see the end of this
With all this rain
It just keeps falling
On my head
And now I'm calling
Out to someone else
To help me make it through

But not everybody knows
That everybody goes
To a better place
And not everybody knows
That everybody could be living their last days
But the hard times will come
and we'll keep movin' on
We're moving on
Keep movin' on

Life!
Hope!
Truth!
Trust!
Faith!
Pride!
Love!
Lust!
Pain!
Hate!
Lies!
Guilt!
Laugh!
Cry!
Live!
Die!

Some friends become enemies
Some friends become your family
Make the best with what your given
This ain't dying!
This is living!

Said we're movin' on
And we got nothing to prove to anyone
Cuz we'll get through
We're movin' on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and

Keep movin' on!

Life!
Hope!
Truth!
Trust!
Faith!
Pride!
Love!
Lust!
Pain!
Hate!
Lies!
Guilt!
Laugh!
Cry!
Live!
Die!

Some friends become enemies
Some friends become your family
Make the best with what your given
This ain't dying
This is living!!!
