Lyrics

IT'S ALL RIGHT

(V1) When I was just a girl
I'd run, stumble and fall.
You'd hold and comfort me,
'til I felt no pain at all.

(V2) And as a baby girl,
you fed and diapered me.
At night, when I was scared,
you'd sing me back to sleep.

(BR) You know I love you
I'll always care
Hush now, my darlin'

(CH) It's all right
It's all right
It's all right
It's all right
It's all right
It's all right
It's all right
It's all right

(V3) Now in your golden years
I'm taking care of you.
The times have surely changed.
The roles reversed it's true.

(V4) The time is drawing near.
There's nothing more to gain.
My heart tears up inside
to see you in such pain.

(BR) You know I love you
I'll always care
Hush now, my darlin'

(CH) It's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right

(V5) Your time is now at hand.
There's no more fighting death.
I'm kneeling at your side
as you take your last breath.

(BR) You know I love you
Go toward the light.
Let love surround you.

(CH) It's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right

(CH) It's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right

(TAG) I wish I may, I wish I might
Go back when everything was right,
when I was just a girl.
