Love Abides
Tom Russell Lyrics


Look how far we've come
Do we know who we are?
Stranded on a mountaintop
Trying to catch a falling star

Here's to what we've left behind us
Here's to what we keep inside
May the road that lies before us
Lead to a place where love abides
I went walking with my darling
Through the early morning frost
Saw three crosses on the roadside
Where three young souls were lost

She says, "They're flying with the angels
Jesus took 'em for a ride
High above the Rio Grande
They found a place where love abides"

You might cross your burning deserts

You might walk your path alone
And a sudden storm may blind you
Shake your spirit to the bone

Seeking shelter for a weary heart
A place to rest, a place to hide
Then somewhere down your troubled road
You find a place where love abides

Our people came across the water
With their fearful untamed hearts
Standing on a foreign shoreline
They prayed for a brand new start

Then hand in hand across the mountains
And the raging rivers wide
They reached the distant ocean
Or found a place where love abides

The voice of Iris DeMent is not of this world! What a wonderful duett, thanks for posting.

Peter Turner

Agreed! A voice gifted from some sort of heaven! Give thanks for Iris, USA! Peter Turner, England.

John Rowan

Rainer Ga, so true.

John Mitchell

I dearly love this song. I bought this album when it came out, and I still feel that it is one of the best albums ever produced. These songs are simply amazing. Find it, and make it yours.

Jim Restin

Absolutely. This is pure gold for the soul.

Stephen Vecchiotti

What a great duet ! Tom and Iris sound wonderful together.

Stuart Thompson

Any time Iris does a duet,,, it is a home run.

Chuck Turner

After hearing "In Spite of Ourselves," I've had to retrain my ear to take Iris's voice seriously. It didn't take long. Her voice is the definition of angelic.

Edi Camon

Precious song and lovely voices. Sublime duet.

Sharon Kay Knight

Hauntingly beautiful. Unique.
