Dark Threshold (for Brenda)  Russell Lawson

[D]A mournful [A]sound trembles o'er the [Bm]ridge
Of your old [A]home now far [D]away
And my true [A]love lies o'er the [Bm]bridge
That I must [A]cross myself some [Bm]day

Your burden's [G]lifted, my sorrow's [D]deep
My life's [Bm]companion, thee would I [A]keep
But you have [G]traveled cross death's dark [D]threshold
I've shed the [A]tears that living [D]brings

if I could change only a few things
I'd ease the hurt that you've endured
An angry taunt, a selfish sting
a kindness I may have obscured

but every day my love increased
I hope this added to your peace
But you have traveled cross death's dark threshold
my passion's just memories of you

o, fairest maid, I loved you true
and I now tell it to the sky
darling mine, I must bid adieu
here is my prayer as home you fly

may you shine bright in eternity
and, if you will, please wait for me
now you have traveled cross death's dark threshold
and one day I will join you there

A mournful sound trembles o'er the ridge
Of your old home now far away
And my true love lies o'er the bridge
That I will cross myself some day
