Peace In The Valley Lyrics

by Johnny Cash

Just before we ask the Stadler brothers to come back out
We'd like to ask the Carter family, and Carl to help us out on
A fine spiritual bit
We got a lot of requests to do Peace in Nevada

Well, I'm tired and so weary
But I must go alone
Till the lord comes and calls, calls me away, oh yes
And the morning's so bright
And the lamb is alight
And the night, night is as black as the sea, oh yes
(There will be peace in the valley for me some day)

There will be peace in the valley for me, dear Lord I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow
No trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me

Well the bear will be gentle
And the wolf will be tame
And the lion shall lay down by the lamb, oh yes
And the beasts from the wild
Will be lead by a child
And I'll be changed, changed from this creature that I am, oh yes

(There will be peace in the valley for me, some day)
There will be peace in the valley for me, dear Lord I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow
No trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me.
