Emmylou Harris - All My Tears Lyrics




When I go don't cry for me
In my fathers arms I'll be
The wounds this world left on my soul
Will all be healed and I'll be whole

Sun and moon will be replaced
With the light of Jesus' face
And I will not be ashamed
For my savior knows my name

It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away

Gold and silver blind the eye
Temporary riches lie
Come and eat from heaven's store
Come and drink and thirst no more

So weep not for me my friend
When my time below does end
For my life belongs to him
Who will raise the dead again

It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away

  4. Matt Thompson

    The people that killed him all fighting over Gram’s body, while Gram’s Deep Blue Sea just honors him and honors God in everything she does.

    – All My Tears Lyrics
    When I go don't cry for me
    In my father's arms I'll be
    The wounds this world left on my soul
    Will all be healed and I'll be whole
    Sun and moon will be replaced
    With the light of Jesus' face
    And I will not be ashamed
    For my savior knows my name
    It don't matter where you bury me
    I'll be home and I'll be free
    It don't matter where I lay
    All my tears be washed away
    Gold and silver blind the eye
    Temporary riches lie
    Come and eat from heaven's store
    Come and drink and thirst no more
    So weep not for me my friend
    When my time below does end
    For my life belongs to him
    Who will raise the dead again
    It don't matter where you bury me
    I'll be home and I'll be free
    It don't matter where I lay
    All my tears be washed away

  9. ninehorse johnson

    The best album on the 90's.

  10. Nancy Aylward

    My favorite EmmyLou Album

  11. Nancy Aylward

    Sing at my death

  12. Anita Melon

    I absolutely will have this played at my funeral. I am stunned with the beauty of the lyrics and Emmylou's calming voice. Big chops to Lanois, he is an icon

    Diane Manson

    Anita Melon I had this played at my Dads funeral last year and I absolutely agree with you, beautiful is an understatement for describing this song

    Anita Melon

    @Diane Manson and I bet beautiful tears were had by all

    mrhaha pasta

    aw man u cunts are depressing me

    Michael Austin

    pmrhaha pasta
    mr foulness, with an online name you must find witty: your vile commentary is puerile & childish; your attempt to degrade is of no effect except to unveil the degeneracy within you. Take yourself back to 5th grade & leave adults to contemplate the mysteries of beauty, purity, holiness, peace & true power: that of the Creator of All Worlds.

  13. cool daddy

    When I got the Wrecking Ball CD, I had no idea. This song especially blew me away!! Words fail. I want this played at my funeral. Best Emmylou record ever, and that's saying a lot... Every Grain of Sand (Dylan) is also great on this record...
