We said we' walk together baby come what may
That come the twilight we lose our way
But if as we're walking a hand slip free
I' wait for you
And I fall behind
Wait for me.

We swore we' travel darling side by side
We' help each other stay in stride
But each lovers steps fall so differently
I' wait for you
I fall behind
Wait for me.

Now everyone dreams of a love lasting and true
But you and I know what this world do
So let's make our steps clear so the other see
And I' wait for you
I fall behind
Wait for me.

There's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
There 'neath the oaks bough soon we wed
we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
I' wait for you
And I fall behind
Wait for me.

I' wait for you
And I fall behind
Wait for me.

Well, I' wait for you
I fall behind
Wait for me.

I' wait for you
And I fall behind, baby
Wait for me.

Darling, I' wait for you
I fall behind
Wait for me.

I' wait for you
And I fall behind
Wait for me.
