lyrics

They Are Falling All Around Me
by Bernice Johnson Reagon
SongTalk Publishing Co. (BMI)

They are falling all around me
They are falling all around me
They are falling all around me
The strongest leaves of my tree

Every paper brings the news that
Every paper brings the news that
Every paper brings the news that
The teachers of my sound are movin' on

Death it comes and rests so heavy
Death it comes and rests so heavy
Death comes and rests so heavy
Your face I'll never see no more

But you're not really going to leave me
You're not really going to leave me
You're not really going to leave me

It is your path I walk
It is your song I sing
It is your load I take on
It is your air that I breathe
It's the record you set
That makes me go on
It's your strength that helps me stand
You're not really
You're not really going to leave me

And I have tried to sing my song right
I have tried to sing my song right

I will try to sing my song right
Be sure to let me hear from you
