Chris Hillman - (Take Me In Your) Lifeboat lyrics

Hillman

Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the ragin' storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear the spirit home
Instrumental (Fiddle)
Come on brothers and sisters and don't fall asleep
Pray night and day or you'll sleep in the deep
Now fathers and mothers are prayin' so loud
Oh, Lord won't you take us in your lifeboat
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the ragin' storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear the spirit home
Instrumental (Mandolin + Acoustic Guitar)
Clouds are so heavy the wind is so loud
Thunder is rolling beckoning the crowd
They pray for the shipmates for what they have done
Put the dyin' sailor in their lifeboat
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the ragin' storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear the spirit home
Instrumental (5-String Banjo + Fiddle)
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the ragin' storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear the spirit home
