Carry Me To Home
(G. Liszt)

It’s too late for me kids,
Save yourselves,
I sowed it I’ll reap it,
Save yourselves,
I’ve had a good run,
But I’m battered and bummed,
I’m not trying to hide it
I fell where I strided.

Won’t someone pick me up
And carry me to home?
And if I do die lonesome,
Bury me alone,
It’s oh so sad though
Painfully true,
I know, I know why
You came to be blue.

I’m drunk again,
And not from love, liquor,
But I’ve seen drunker men,
Hey, lots are love-sicker,
I’m numb and I get number now,
That’s all that a drink brings,
But I’d rather be blank,
I’m dark when I think things.

Won’t someone pick me up
And carry me to home?
If I do die lonesome
Bury me alone
It’s oh so sad though painfully true
I know, I know why
You came to be blue

Would somebody please pick me up
And carry me to home?
And if I do die lonesome
Bury me alone,
It’s oh so sad though painfully true,
I know, I know why,

Oh pick me up,
And carry me to home,
And if I do die,
Bury me alone,
I’ll sow no bad,
It’s pain for me too,
I know that I’m why
You came to be blue.
