Valley Of The Shadow Of Death  Tossers




Last [Am]night I lay all [G]in my dreams,
when a [Am]rap at the door it [G]startled me.
And I [Am]heard those footsteps [G]on the stairs,
And I [C]bade her; [G]please come [Am]in.
Come [Am]in, come in, my [C]roving friend.
Come [Am]in and rest [G]a [Am]while.
For you've been gone so [C]very long,
it's [Am]nice to see [G]you [Am]smile.
Come in, come in, my [C]wandering friend.
Ac[Am]cept my wel[G]come [Am]home.
I hope you can stay a [C]long, long while before you [G]have to [Am]go.

And she walked across the room to me,
and then she sat right down with me,
and told me that she had to leave.
She could not stay for long.

A child he held into his arms,
a child that I knew well through time,
and told me that he had to leave.
He had to take him home.


She crossed the floor and moved away,
and my heart said, "Stop her. Maker her stay."
But I just showered myself in tears,
for I just let her go.

When I awoke I cried and cried,
and went to sit by his graveside,
and visit the child he left behind.
Because he had to go.

(For the instrumental bit here, repeat the Verse twice)

You [Am]must come back to me again.
Ac[Am]cept the welcome I extend.
I [Am]will not let you go this time,
if [C]only [G]in my [Am]dreams
if [C]only [G]in my [Am]dreams
if [C]only [G]in my [Am]dreams.
Come [C]to me [G]in my [Am]dreams.

And yeah, though you walk ever on,
may your heart be not weary but strong.
And yeah, though you walk ever on,
through the valley of the shadow of death.

Repeat the last verse, and there you go. If you have any questions jot me an email at
or message me on
