endless sleep  Hank Williams Jr.



[E]The night was black rain falling down
[E]Look for my baby she's [B]nowhere a[E]round
[E]Traced her footsteps down to the shore
[E]Afraid she's gone for [B]ever[E]more
Chorus:
I [A]looked at the sea and it seemed to say
[E]I took your baby from [B]you a[E]way
[A]I heard a voice cryin' in the deep
[E]Come join me baby in my [B]endless [E]sleep
Why did we quarrel why did we fight
Why did I leave her alone tonight
That's why her footsteps ran into the sea
That's why my baby has gone from me,
Chorus
Ran in the water heart full of fear
There in the breakers I saw her near
Reached for my darling held her to me
Stole her away from the angry sea
Chorus 2:
I looked at the sea and it seemed to say
You took your baby from me away
My heart cried out she's mine to keep
I saved my baby from that endless sleep
[B]Endless [E]sleep
[B]Endless [E]sleep
[B]Endless [E]sleep
