DT Lyrics:





Subject: By Way of Sorrow ('Blue Pony' version)
From: slawlor
Date: 08 Nov 99 - 10:46 AM

I've been trying to decipher the lyrics for this from the CD, with limited success.

The chorus lyrics as written in the liner notes are:
You have come by way of sorrow,
You have come by way of tears.
But you'll reach your destiny,
Meant to find you all these years.

However, when she's singing it, Julie Miller has changed the last three lines of the chorus the second and third time it comes around. This is what I've been able to extrapolate:

Second chorus:
You have come by way of sorrow,
You have taken a long way home (or maybe "a lonely road"),
But ??????????
You will some day come to know.

Third chorus:
You have come by way of sorrow,
You’ve come over a stony path,
But ??????????????????
You will lay your burden down.

Has anyone else been able to determine just what these words are? By the way, I already checked the version on the "Cry Cry Cry" album; they just used the words from the first chorus each time.

Thanks,
Susan Lawlor

You might try the CRY CRY CRY CD. It has the lyrics on the liner.

You have known the kiss of sorrows
Am                   G      C
Doors that would not let you in
F   C         G    F
Outcast and a stranger
Am       G       C      F      Am       G       C      F
You have come by way of sorrow you have come by way of tears
Am          G          C    F                   G          F
But you'll reach your destiny come to find you all these years
Am                G         C
Come to find you all these years
Am               G      C         F       C       G    F
You have drunk a bitter wine with none to be your comfort
Am               G    C             F   C            G    F
You who once were left behind will be welcome at love's tables
Am       G       C      F      Am       G       C      F
You have come by way of sorrow you have come by way of tears
Am          G          C    F                  
But you'll reach your destiny

You will one day come to know
Am               G       C
You will one day come to know
Am                   G       C          F       C       G      F
All the nights that joy has slept will awake to days of laughter
Am                   G          C
Gone the tears that you have wept
                F      C    G F
You'll dance in freedom ever after
Am       G       C      F      Am       G       C      F
You have come by way of sorrow you have come by way of tears

You will lay your burden down

You will lay your burden down

Here's what I came up with...


You've been taken by the wind
You have known the kiss of sorrow
Doors that would not let you in
Outcast and a stranger

You have come by way of sorrow
You have come by way of tears
But you'll reach your destiny
Meant to find you all these years
Meant to find you all these years

You have drunk a bitter wine
With none to be your comfort
You who once were left behind
Will be welcome at love's table

You have come by way of sorrow
You have taken a long way home
But the love that waits on you
You will someday come to know
You will one day come to know

All the nights that joy has slept
Will awake to days of laughter
Gone the tears that you have wept
You'll dance in freedom ever after

You have come by way of sorrow
You've come over a stony ground
But when love calls out to me
You will lay your burden down
You will lay your burden down

You have come by way of sorrow
You have come by way of tears
But you'll reach 쳌your destiny
Meant to find you all these years
Meant to find you all these years

I think what's above is close as far as I can tell. The only place I differ is instead of "But when love calls out to me" I think she's saying, "But when love calls out your name."
