Baby black sky, black sky is all I see
Yeah, baby black sky, black sky is all I see
Please stand beside me baby
Shine your light for me
Well, I been all around the world, ain't nothin? I ain't seen
From the Mekong river to the San Joaquin
I made it down to Helena but it?s just a ghost town
And I got to Jackson but they tore old Jackson down
Yeah, I been around the world
Black sky is all I see
Why don't you stand beside me baby?
Shine your light for me
Baby, well I went to the graveyard
To see my friend one last time, people gathered ?round
Some were prayin, some were cryin?
They were talkin? about heaven and the final judgement day
But all I could do was say goodbye to him turn and walk away
Yeah, I went to the graveyard
But black sky was all I seen
Please stand beside me baby
Shine your light for me
I wake up every mornin?, try the best I can
To make it one more day in a world I don't understand
Now the sun baby?s shinin? but there's darkness on the land
And I can't find my way baby unless you take my hand
Yeah I, I wake up every mornin? baby
Black sky is all I see
Please stand beside me baby
Shine your light for me
Yeah, black sky
Black sky is all I see
Please shine your light pretty baby
Take this black sky away from me
