Help Me Make It Through the Night Lyrics

by Johnny Cash

Take the ribbon from your hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Layin' soft against your skin
Like the shadows on the wall

Come and lay down by my side
Till the early mornin' light
All I'm askin' is your time
Help me make it through the night

I don't care who's right or wrong
I don't try to understand
I don't care about tomorrow
'Cause tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
Ain't it sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

I don't care who's right or wrong
I don't try to understand
I don't care about tomorrow
June tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
Ain't it sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night
Ain't it sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night
