Song: “Sweet Old World” sung by Emmylou Harris

Sweet Old World (written by Lucinda Williams)

Album: Wrecking Ball, Emmylou Harris

See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world
See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world

The breath from your own lips, the touch of fingertips
A sweet and tender kiss

The sound of a midnight train, wearing someone’s ring
Someone calling your name

Somebody so warm cradled in your arm
Didn’t you think you were worth anything

See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world
See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world

Millions of us in love, promises made good

Your own flesh and blood
Looking for some truth, dancing with no shoes

The beat, the rhythm, the blues
The pounding of your heart’s drum together with another one
Didn’t you think anyone loved you

See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world

See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world
