CHRIS HILLMAN
"(Take Me In Your) Lifeboat"

Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the raging storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear the spirit home

Come on brothers and sisters and don't fall asleep
Pray night and day, or you'll sleep in the deep
Now fathers and mothers are prayin' so loud
Oh Lord, won't you take us in your lifeboat

Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the raging storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear the spirit home

Clouds are so heavy, the wind is so loud
Thunder is roaring, beckoning the crowd
They pray for their shipmates for what they have done
Put the dying sailor in their lifeboat

Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the raging storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear the spirit home

Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the raging storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear the spirit home
