Cathie Ryan – May The Road Rise To Meet You lyrics

[Verse]
Summertime the sun would shine
We’d lay out in the field
Sheltered in the shadow of a tree
We’d write our poems to take along
And sing out on the road
And you would always sing this song to me
[Chorus]
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be at your back
May the sun shine down warm upon your land
May the rain fall soft upon your face until we meet again
May god hold you in the palm of his hand
[Verse]
Autumn leaves would leave the tree
In colours on the ground
Swirling patterns, beautiful to see
I’d lay my head down on your lap
I would not make a sound
And you would always sing this song to me
[Chorus]
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be at your back
May the sun shine down warm upon your land
May the rain fall soft upon your face until we meet again
May god hold you in the palm of his hand
[Verse]
The winter days the tree
Would shiver in the wind
Waiting for the warming touch of spring
You’d hold me in the firelight
We’d stare into the flames
And this is what you always used to sing
[Chorus]
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be at your back
May the sun shine down warm upon your land
May the rain fall soft upon your face until we meet again
May god hold you in the palm of his hand
May god hold you in the palm of his hand
