Lyrics

Cross by the Road

Written By: Eric Watson

CROSS BY THE ROAD

A baby girl is sweet and soft
Just like a pillow
When they’re born I can’t explain
The way you feel
Soon enough they are aloft
Like leaves from a willow
Torn
Growing pains seem all too real

Cross by the road
That is the place I lost my baby
One thing I know
Every day I live I have to go
To the cross by the road

Stormy night she waived goodbye
As they drove off together
The smell of flowers in her hair
But in the twinkle of an eye
Lives were changed forever
And soon God’s angels would be there

At the cross by the road
That is the place I lost my baby
I’ll never know
Why instead of me she had to go
At the cross by the road
You see I’ve lived a sinful life
Always counted on my wife
To read the Bible and to pray
But God I miss my little girl
And when it’s time to leave this world
I don’t want to throw it all away
Cause when I come out here
I can feel her near
I smell the flowers in the air
And I know she’s with me

At the cross by the road
That is the place I’ll meet my baby
And Lord when I go
We’ll be walking hand in hand I know
From the cross by the road

Cross by the road
Cross by the road
