You stay here

You stay here and I’ll go look for wood
Do not fear, I’ll be back soon enough
Do not let the fire die, neither let it burn too bright

You stay here, I’ll go look for bread
And if I can, some sugar for the kids
Dry your eyes, I’ll be all right; I know where they’ve laid the mines

You stay here, I’ll go look for coats
There may still be some out on the road
We’ll wash them clean with melted snow; the kids don’t ever have to know

You stay here, I’ll go look for guns
I think I know where they’ve hidden some
‘Cause if a tiger comes one night, we won’t go without a fight

You stay here, I’ll go look for God
It’s not so hard, ’cause I know where he’s NOT
I will bring him back with me, make him listen, make him see

You stay here, I’ll go look for wood
