  • Should you go first and I remain to walk the road alone
    I'll live in memory's garden dear with happy days we've known
    In spring I'll wait for roses red when fade with lilac's blue
    And in early fall when the brown leaves fall I'll catch a glimpse of you
    Should you go first and I remain for battles to be fought
    Each thing you touched along the way will be a calloused spot
    I hear you boys I see your smile though blindly I may grow
    The mem'ry of your helping hand will boil me on the thought
    Beyond the sunset oh blisful morning when with our Saviour heaven is begun
    Earth stroll is ending oh glory dawning beyond the sunset when day is done
    Should you go first and I remain to finish with the scroll
    No lenghtenin' shadows shall creep in to make this life seem droll
    We've known so much of happiness we've had our cup of joy
    And mem'ry is one gift of God that death cannot destroy
    I want you to know each step you take that I may walk the same
    For someday down that lonely road you'll hear me call your name
    Should you go first and I remain one thing I'll have you do
    Walk slowly down that long long path for soon I'll follow you
    In that fair homeland we'll know no parting beyond the sunset for evermore
