Alison Krauss - Till I Can Gain Control Again Lyrics




Just like the sun over the mountain top
You know I'll always come again
You know I love to spend my morning time
Like sunlight dancing on your skin

I've never gone so wrong as to telling lies to you
And what you've seen is what I've been
And there is nothing I could hide from you
You see me better than I can

Out on the road that leads before me now
There are some turns where I will spin
I only hope that you can hold me now
Till I can gain control again

Like a lighthouse you must stand alone
Landmark the sailor's journeys end
No matter what seas I've have been sailing on
I'll always roll this way again

Out on the road that lies before me now
There are some turns where I will spin
I only hope that you can hold me now
Till I can gain control again

Till I can gain control again

  1. Roger Alsop

    Wonderful.

  2. Bernhardt Moore

    Pure as a silver bell.

  3. Larry Thompson

    Perfect presentation: you've got to love the bonny dress, the boots, the notes and the girl.

  4. Anita Ross

    Awesome

  5. Hollys Buddy

    Put simply, she is quite magnificent. My wife and I met her and the band in Branson, Missouri a few years back. Such a nice lady as were all the band as we lunched together.

  6. Joey Rodriguez

    Her voice carries you away to that place 💕🎶

  7. Eric Tilton

    just beautiful..and the voice of an angel..love her so much..

  8. Jerry Percy

    A stunning, crystalline pure vocal by Alison Krauss, of course—really the emotional highlight of the concert. The accompaniment of Matt Rollings on piano and Greg Leisz on pedal steel guitar is spot-on perfect in terms of both quantity and quality. A brilliant and rare performance of Rodney Crowell’s moving and beautiful song. It doesn’t get much better.

  9. Stephen Stoner

    Hillary dont sing like that and never has

  10. craig wheatley

    Perfect pitch

  17. thomas meitzler

    even if we could not hear it, it would still be BEAUTIFUL, with the sound of her voice it's ecstasy.

  18. Sam Henry

    Voice is terrific, but timing can use some help. Sorry.

  37. Dylan Appenfeldt

    Alison Can Sing My Telephone Book! Love You!!!

  38. Frances Evelyn Rogers

    Amazing in every way .

  39. Becky Murphy

    I've only heard this sung by Waylon Jennings. Alison gives it a completely different feeling. Her voice is so haunting.

  40. TJ Wash

    Emmylou’s version with Linda Ronstadt and Fayssoux Starling on backup vocals is still the gold standard for me

  41. Dirk Teufel

    btw, Matt Rollings on piano ist absolutly perfect!!!!!

  42. Gerwyn Evans

    Perfect - as always.

  43. Brenda Wright

    Love this song

  44. TMS

    Still LOVE this song! I got to sing it with Rodney Crowell, (who wrote it), in '99. One of the highlights of my career. I like it by everybody I've ever heard do it. ... Crystal Gayle....Willie Nelson.... Emmylou Harris.... And this incredible young lady!

  45. Jerry Shunk

    When you bypass Emmy Lou & Van; you are some kinda "ON!"

  46. Brett Man

    Very few reach me like Alison Krauss...

  47. willy potts

    'these are not tears of sorrow i shed; rather tears of joy" -wp

    Jerry Shunk

    Then your missing the point!

  48. unclebobunclebob

    Rodney!!!!

  49. Troy Alcorn

    Only a parent can stay true and be there to help when the turn turns into a spin. I love the message.

  50. Al Dee

    I love great women singers.
    This is waaaay up on the heap of fantastic singing.

  51. Alan Hunter

    At the time of me posting this there are 120 dislikes for this .........I’m sorry that defies any understanding

  52. Graham Carr

    Pure magic. Matchless voice. Perfect diction. Wonderful tone.

  53. Youggle-It ....... if-n ya can't fix-it.

    some how all the stress and tension pain and strain leaves my mind and body when i hear this song from Alison Krauss.

  54. Jimmy Collette

    No one can sing as pure as Allison and I mean no one. God gave us her to please our ears and sooth our souls. Thank you Lord.

  55. Jim miller

    Just now came across it.Herb you put it right.Wish she had it just like that on her own CD.A great rendition with minimal music.

  56. Eleonor Isabel Kongehl

    Beautiful Voice. No one sings like her¡¡

  57. Jesse Jones

    Honesty and humility, an indomitable combination with added harmony, beautiful xx

  58. Michael Thompson

    ❤️❤️❤️

  59. Kigozi Edward

    26/06/2019. Anyone else watching with me.

    Vaughn Brady

    I watch this at least 4 times a week, she has such an ethereal quality to her voice. Truly the voice of an angel....

  60. RobertWaldron1

    She is just the best

  61. Jim Hutcheson

    I like Alison Krauss, but in this instance it's an example of a singer over -singing the song and taking away the emotion of the song.Listen to Emmylou and compare it to this.

    philjquitt

    Yes I see what you mean. I listened to EH version as you suggested. You seem to be comparing two different things. Like apples and oranges. I see merit in both versions. What other posters seem to getting from AK is this "celestial" quality in her singing - beyond emotion almost. Beyond earth.

  62. chuck7

    Written by Rodney Crowell What a Beautiful Song , Alison Krauss and Emmylou Harris Version is Most Beautiful

  63. Norma M. Atchley

    I was lucky enough to meet her at a concert in Knoxville maybe 10 year ago, and yes she is truly one oh America’s treasures, she always get right me in the feels.

  64. roy davis

    Boy did she ever sing that, it was beautiful, Love this lady and her music.

  65. John Gallagher

    Simply gifted

  66. jason cole

    Her last cd they used the most expensive mics for her........Shame as she just recorded "you don't know me".
    If Sony RCA or whatever would get it together......we need her to do a duet with the only singer that could sing ballads with such emotion,vocal interpretation......Elvis...she just recorded two of his songs......it would be brilliant......with her delicate voice and his art of the love song.......she has sang with...some not deserving......I did like her duet w/John Waite....missing you...they should have won the Grammy for it.....she is just sublime....my fave.....!!

  67. Montse Márquez

    genial allison

  68. wdtarpley03

    It takes an angel to sacrifice her happiness for yours. She’s helped me threw good times and threw bad times. She makes my heart melt. She’s helped me be a better husband and a better lover. No matter what you listen to you can not deny her greatness and her beautiful voice. I just hope my daughter gets to see her before she stops touring

  69. Lans Navar

    Alison has a magic voice

  70. patou menou

    Alison Krauss je vous adore ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️🎧🔊🔊🔊🔊🔊🔊

  71. Georgia Hogue

    She makes it look so effortless.

  72. John Boulding

    beautiful, what else can you say

  73. Clay Fraughton

    so inspirational .. how is your lighthouse doing ??

  74. Cindy Rizzato

    Just like the sun over the mountain top
    You know I'll always come again
    You know I love to spend my morning time
    Like sunlight dancing on your skin

    I've never gone so wrong as to telling lies to you
    And what you've seen is what I've been
    And there is nothing I could hide from you
    You see me better than I can

    Out on the road that leads before me now
    There are some turns where I will spin
    I only hope that you can hold me now
    Till I can gain control again

    Like a lighthouse you must stand alone
    Landmark the sailor's journeys end
    No matter what seas I've have been sailing on
    I'll always roll this way again

    Out on the road that lies before me now
    There are some turns where I will spin
    I only hope that you can hold me now
    Till I can gain control again

    Till I can gain control again

  75. tom wray

    What mental defect occupies the 99 thumbs down on this performance? Worms in their collective brain? Krauss' pitch and note are perfect. Always has been. She does great homage to this great Rodney Crowell ballad, made immortal by Emmylou Harris. Just stunning vocal and indescribable.

  76. James Ryan

    I love Albert Lee's version of this as a guitar player . But vocally this is probably the nicest version I have ever heard there are singers and some fine singers then you have alison . And that's all one can say .

  77. Groggy Doggy

    Blue Rodeo Blue grass.....beautiful

  78. Alex Gordon

    I could listen to her sing the public phone book she's that good.

  79. JACK REEVES

    The steel player knows what he is doing!!!

    nittmo40

    That piano player is amazing also. I think he is overlooked in this video/song.

    Steven Redman

    Everyone on the stage knows what they're doing.

  80. JACK REEVES

    Really outstanding!!!

  81. norman crew

    Hey, 'Until I Can Gain Control Again' as a song title, must be one of the most insightful statements ever written. In a few short words it expresses what so many us feel when we find ourselves in places we don't want to be. I would love to know the back story. I thought this was perhaps Rodney's best song until he came up with, 'It's Not Over Yet,' which is kind of magnificent. Music is a wonderful thing, don't you think?

  82. Jules M

    I peed next to her in a restroom at PF Chang’s in Nashville a few years back. Lol. Was a fan of her music then and still am today. She’s pure, authentic, beautifully simplistic. I hope her voice is on the loud speakers in heaven when I get there.

    Tom Bowden

    Did she order the angel food cake for dessert?

  83. Laurie Douglas

    Holy crap chills.

  84. allan hughes

    What a lady what a singer WHAT A LADY AND SINGER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  85. patou menou

    Super Alison !! Elle remplace emmylouharris toute ma jeunesse ♥️♥️♥️🎧🔊🔊🎆💫😍💖💞🎉 musiciens sublimes 👏👏👍🎉💫🎆

  86. HMichael Hawkins

    How does a woman such as Alison have the courage to go stand on a stage alone with mostly only a piano playing in the background and sing a song this beautiful? She amazes me.
    I wonder who the 99 people are who voted this down? They must lack an appreciation for music completely.

  87. LadyAnne

    Lovely and Sad. ...Yes. Need holding till I can gain control again. ....

  88. C Michael Hoover

    Brought tears to my eyes. The sheer purity is amazing.

  89. Stephen Babin

    I sobered up to this song when Rodney Crowell put it out.

  90. Mike Gibbs

    ANGELS VOICE.....TOP OF THE LIST !!!!

  91. Maria Kellogg

    Seeing her live will be one of my favorite moments in my lifetime. She makes time stand still with her voice.

  92. Jenny Low

    I'm mesmerized by her voice and love every song she sings.

  93. Mike Crawford

    My Lady. My Lady, you have taken me to that place. And that place for me has only happened just a number of times. Thank you Ms Krauss.

  94. Rick B

    I can’t count how many times I’ve listened to this song. I love Allison’s voice and the musical accompaniment on this song. Everything about this song is right to me.👍👍

  95. Bob Marshall

    Wow. I thought I had heard every song Alison had ever recorded, but somehow I have missed this one until now. Yes, I love Emmylou's version, hard to top, but Alison did it here. Oh, my. It doesn't get any better than this. Well, maybe her rendition of "Heartstrings."

  96. Bruce

    A true angelic siren. A voice from above.

  97. mariancolts

    Cardi B just performed in front of 74,000 people ( thousands of whom did not know her) at the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show. Rodeo management was glad she was there as " she represents diversity and represents what people wants to hear." Needless to say there is no place at Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show for good, classic country music.
