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
