Song Lyric Sunday – Comfort Me by Tim McGraw

For someone who doesn’t really listen to country music anymore, I seem to post a lot of it.  I suppose no matter what your current playlists are, you will always have those nostalgic albums that have a place in your heart.  Tim McGraw’s album, Tim McGraw and the Dancehall Doctors is one of those albums for me.

I haven’t listened to this song in years, but it perfectly expresses all those thing that are comforting to me.  It is also an easy song to listen to what with the violin and the banjo.  I also went out and found a video that has some pretty stunning scenery, so I hope you enjoy watching and listening and basking in comfort.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Wake me my lady don’t let me sleep
Open my eyes to the wonders you keep
Let me look at you see how you shine
I’ll fall in love like I’ve done every time

Lay me in soft green grass
Down where the river runs
Under the mountain caps
Gold with the setting sun

Walk me along the bay
Beyond the verdant trees
Carry me with your grace
Forever comfort me

You walk on water searching the east
The souls of the masses pass at your feet
Looking up at you with tears in their eyes
Fathers of fathers of fathers gone by

Walk me down old main streets
Ride me down rusty rails
Fields full of summer wheat
Peppered with rounded bales
Steeples where church bells ring
Lighthouses by the sea
Reach out through gathered storms
Faithfully comfort me

I am your tired I am your poor in spirit
Yearning to breathe, breathe free
Breathe free

Lay me in soft green grass
Down where the river runs
Under the mountain caps
Gold with the setting sun

Walk me down old main streets
Ride me down rusty rails
Fields full of summer wheat
Peppered with rounded bales
Steeples where church bells ring
Lighthouses by the sea
Reach out through gathered storms
Faithfully comfort me

Comfort Me
