V1: I got a soul filled with brick and stone
draggin' these dreams and now they're worn
to the bone. Pride is a prison and I built
it all alone. That isn't how I wanted it to be.

CHORUS: Carry Me--whoa yeah--carry me, won't you
carry me. Carry me, mmm...Lord won't
you carry me home.

V2: Like a stranger in a foreign land, hearng
a language I could never understand.
Building my castles upon the shifting sand
and watching them drift out to sea, oh

CH: Carry me, carry me, oh yeah, carry me
won't you carry me, oh, carry me, won't
you carry me, Lord won't you carry me home

BR: Take this weight from my shoulders--take away this misery, oh

CH: Carry me, yeah, carry me, oh, carry me
carry me, oh, carry me, won't hou carry me,
Lord won't you carry me home, Lord won't you carry me home.
