The Cardinals, Ryan Adams and Ryan Adams & the Cardinals - Magnolia Mountain

I want to go to Magnolia Mountain
And lay my weary head down
Down on the rocks
Of the mountain my savior made
Steady my soul and ease my worry
Hold me when I rattle like a hummingbird hummin'
Tie me to the rocks of the mountain my savior made

Lie to me
Sing me a song
Sing me a song until the morning comes
And if the morning come, will you lie to me?
Will you take me to your bed?
Will you lay me down?
Til' I'm heavy like the rocks in the riverbed
That my savior made
Please

I want to be the bluebird singin'
Singin' to the roses in her yard
The roses in her yard her father grew for her
It's been raining like Tennessee honey
So long I got too heavy to fly
Ain't no bluebird ever gets too heavy to sing

Lie to me
Sing me a song
Sing me a song until the morning comes
And if the morning don't come, will you lie to me?
Will you take me to your bed?
Will you lay me down?
'Til I'm heavy like the rocks in the riverbed
That my savior made
Please
Please

We burn the cotton fields down in the valley
And ended up with nothing but scars
The scars became the lessons that we gave to our children after the war
There ain't nothing but the truth up on Magnolia Mountain
Where nobody ever dies
Steady your soul and ease your worry
They got a room for you

Lie to me like I lie to you
Calm me down until the morning comes
And if the morning don't come
Lie to me
Will you take me to your bed?
Will you lay me down?
All heavy like the rocks in the riverbed
That my savior made
For us
Please
For us
For me
For us
For me
