My mother often told me, "angels bonded your life away."
One day, you will accomplish, but remember god and pray."
So, I'm trustin' in him, everyday,
to bear all my burdens away.

I just can't keep from cryin', sometimes.
I just can't keep from cryin', sometimes.
When my heart is full of sorrow and my eyes are full of tears,
I just can't keep from cryin', sometimes.

My mother's in the glory. Thank god I'm on my way,
'cause father is gone, too, and sister could not stay.
So now, I'm on the king's highway and I'm travelin' everyday,
because I just can't keep from cryin', sometimes.


I remember, when she left, I thought I'd pray for a little while.
Soon, it'd all be over, then I'd carry on with a smile,
but everyday, as I get older, I think of what I told her
and I just can't keep from cryin', anymore.
