When they carried you into the parlor Your wounds were the worst I'd seen Cold as snow your body trembled Craddled in the arms of morphine All the kinfolk cried out loud Good shepherd save this man But you whispered with icy breath It is not in his hands and you said Heaven ain't ready for me yet and you looked at me Give me your heart and take a bet and you held my hand Now I've seen your face now that we've met I shall not slip away Mama said to me, daughter You must nurse your cousin well So I cared for you thru days and night But your fever I did not quell For weeks I watched you suffer pain That no laudanum could ease All I had left to do is pray Lord have mercy on him please - and you said Heaven ain't ready for me yet and you looked at me Give me your heart and take a bet and you held my hand Now I've seen your face now that we've met I shall not slip away Now winters lights has cooled the air At last your strength's returned You talk to me of the life you spent And of the life you've earned You'll waste no time on vengenance You've no wish to fight again To find peace you say In God we trust Put little faith in man No, Heaven aint ready for you yet, Jesse I'll give you my heart I'll take a bet Jesse Now Ive seen your face now that we've met We shall not slip away
