lyrics

I pleaded and I cried, but she’d made up her mind
You get awful worn down when every dream you’ve had has died
She left on a train in the morning
It was the coldest of all days
Oh, the Lord taketh away, taketh away

The house was in a slumber, the moon was flying high
You held her even after, you cried all through the night
We laid her by the oak tree
We sang to God and we prayed

Winter is no friend of mine—she’s cold and mean as they come
Stops in every now and then, leaves you feeling numb
She took that piece of land from us
She took off faster than she came

The kids were young and we were tired, but we loved God and we prayed
Good weather came with spring, you’d lie awake and you’d sing to me
There was shouting on the hills of Georgia,
There was thanking God and giving praise
But the Lord taketh away, taketh away

Oooooo

There was shouting on the hills of Georgia
There was thanking God and giving praise
