Bek Lyrics

I've Seen the Land Beyond

(From the One Foot In The Grave Album)

[Written by Mississippi John Hurt]

From these shores where we belong
I have seen the land beyond
Where the Lord is strange and strong
I have seen the land beyond

There's no telling who'll be dead
When the pale horse is turning red
And the tongues will burn in vain
And then everything will feel the same

There's no patience, there's no peace
I have seen the land beyond
Where the gravestones never cease
I have seen the land beyond

Through the troubles of the years
The heavenly apparition appears
And we're haunted by our own minds
And the spirit comes in disguise

From these shores where we belong
I have seen the land beyond
I'll be there and I'll be gone
I have seen the land beyond
