Subject: Lyr Add: WHEN MY MORNING COMES AROUND (I DeMent)
From: Peter T.

Easily the most beautiful song I heard in the year 2000. Good for 2001, too:


WHEN MY MORNING COMES AROUND
(Iris DeMent)
As recorded by Iris DeMent on "The Way I Should" (1996)

When my morning comes around, no one else will be there,
so I won't have to worry about what I'm supposed to say;
And I alone will know that I have climbed the great big mountain,
And that's all that'll matter when my morning comes around.

When my morning comes around, I will look back on this valley,
At these sidewalks and alleys where I have lingered so long,
This place where I now live it will burn to ash and cinder,
Like some ghost, I won't remember when my morning comes around.

When my morning comes around, from a new cup I'll be drinking,
And for once I won't be thinking: there's something wrong with me,
I'll wake up and find, that my faults have been forgiven,
Oh, and that's when I'll start living When my morning comes around.

When my morning comes around,
When my morning comes around,
When my morning comes around,
I know my morning will come around,
I know my morning will come around.

Thanks, Peter. I've heard the song a few times, but never really thought about the words...

Seems like a song for a lot of us here at MudCat, on this first day of a new milennium........sure speaks to me. I hope the place I have been will indeed, burn to the ground. Is there a melody?

It is from her album, The Way I Should -- check it out at, www.irisdement.com. I am playing it in open G. She has been recently doing traditional Carter Family songs and others with John Prine, Tom Russell, etc.

Can anyone suggest any chords for this because the ones I am finding on the usual sites just don't sound right to me.

Is Sorcha's interpretation correct? Lyrics seem to me like they are about death?
