Chorus 3 Lyrics

So carry me away from here
To the place where I've been before
Set me free my darlin' dear
To the place I feel pain no more

So carry me away from here
To the place where I've been before
Set me free my darlin' dear
To the place I feel pain no more

No more
No more
No more
No more
No more
No more 


(NOTE: I know that there is a banjo playing throughout the song but it's
too faint for me to figure out.  It sounds like it's picking the same
chords as the verses but I can't really tell for sure.)

Carry Me Away Lyrics


Are we lost now honey? Oh we oh!
Are we lost now honey? Oh we oh!
Are we lost now honey?
Drifting out to sea

The waves keep crashin' Oh we oh
The waves keep crashin' Oh we oh
Oh the waves keep crashin'
Into you and me!

So carry me away from here
To the place where I've been before
Set me free my darlin' dear
To the place I feel pain no more

Well are we done here honey? Oh we oh!
Are we done here honey?  Oh we oh!
Are we done here honey?
Love beneath the sea

The sky is falling, oh we oh
The sky is falling, oh we oh
The sky is falling
Down on you and me!

So carry me away from here
To the place where I've been before
Set me free my darlin' dear
To the place I feel pain no more

So carry me away from here
To the place where I've been before
Set me free my darlin' dear
To the place I feel pain no more

Are we dyin' honey? Oh we oh!
Are we dyin' honey? Oh we oh!
Are we dyin' honey
This I'm not so sure

Yeah we're dyin' honey, oh we oh!
Yeah we're dyin' honey, oh we oh!
Yeah we're dyin' honey
That's one thing for sure!

So carry me away from here
To the place where I've been before
Set me free my darlin' dear
To the place I feel pain no more

So carry me away from here
To the place where I've been before
Set me free my darlin' dear
To the place I feel pain no more
