lyrics

I went down to the magic water
The toll man said I was right on time
I knelt down to take a drink when what he said
Sure did change my mind

He said boy we are born into weakness
We find our flaws on the way
Waiting out the weather sometimes we forget
That living and dying are the same

I don’t mean to make you sad
But this is just the way

I went down to mail you a letter
But the post was already filled
With other ones like me with their letters
And the line stretched over the hills

I ran just as fast as I could then
Down to the old river banks
The toll man was standing beside me

He said boy we are born into weakness
We find our flaws on the way
When we’re living, dying seems so infinite

We forget that dying and living are the same

I don’t mean to make you sad
But this is just the way
