Manitoba Lyrics

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Manitoba Up in Manitoba
The sky was very blue
The people were a few
And nights were getting colder

And when I heard the sound
Saw the sky turn red
I got up from my bed
And I wandered far from town

I have seen the face of God
And I was not afraid
I have seen the face of God
And I have dearly paid

Darkness came I couldn't see
I had no light to follow
I slept inside the hollow
Of a dead and fallen tree

I'll tell you how three days I tried
To wake my up, ah, but no
My flesh had turned to snow
And I thought I had died

For I have seen the face of God
And I was not afraid
I have seen the face of God
And I have dearly paid

And though I had it rough
They got me home in time
And they gave me homemade wine
But it was not enough

The cold had made me dumb
And I was sent away
These walls are here today
For fifty years and some

Yes, I have seen the face of God
And I was not afraid
I have seen the face of God
And I have dearly paid

I have seen the face of God
And I was not afraid
I have seen the face of God
And I have dearly paid
