Till The End Of The World Rolls Round

Lyrics: Thomas, Newton
Music: Thomas, Newton

Played by Jerry with Old And In The Way. DeadBase lists it also as having been played by Legion Of Mary, but that's a mistake for People Make The World Go Round.

Well I tried to sail the sea of life, I rowed my boat alone
Your love meant nothing to me dear, my heart was made of stone
To the harbour filled with lonliness my little boat was moored
And on the day I first met you I fell right overboard

Till the end of the world rolls round
I'll keep on loving you
As long as the sun comes up and comes down
And the big blue sky comes down to the ground
As long as the world goes around and round
I'll keep on loving you

And whenever you're around my dear my heart just won't keep still
And when it comes to kissing you, I'll never get my fill
They said I'd never settle down, that I would always roam
I could never be the kind for loving wife and home


So now I know the way I felt was only selfish pride
Well I thought my heart was fireproof but you burned your way inside
So tell me what I've got to do and tell me how it stands
The cards are on the table, dear, my life is in your hands
