When You Awake Lyrics

Ollie told me, I'm a fool
So I walked on down the road a mile
Went to the house that brings a smile
Sat upon my grandpa's knee
And what do you think he said to me?

When you awake, you will remember everythin'
You will be hangin' on a string from your
When you believe you will relieve on the soul
That you were born up to grow old and never know

Ollie showed me the fork in the road
You can take to the left or go straight to the right
Use your days and save your nights
Careful where you step and watch whacha eat
Sleep with the light and you got it beat

When you awake you will remember everythin'
You will be hangin' on a string from your
When you believe you will relieve on the soul
That you were born up to grow old and never know

Ollie warned me, it's mean old world
The street don't greet you, yes, it's true
What am I supposed to do?
Read the writin' on the wall
I heard it when I was very small

When you awake, you will remember everythin'
You will be hangin' on a string from your
When you believe you will relieve on the soul
That you were born up to grow old and never know

Wash my hands in lye water
I got a date with the Captains daughter
You can go and tell your brother
We sure gonna love one another, oh yea

May be right and you might be wrong
I ain't gonna worry all day long
Snow's gonna come and the frost gonna bite
My old car froze up last night
Ain't no reason to hang my head I could wake up in the
Mornin' dead
Ohh ohh ohh
Ohh ohh ohh

If I thought it would do any good
I'd stand on the rock where Moses
