Chorus 3 Lyrics

So carry me away from here
To the place where I’ve been before
Set me free my darlin’ dear
To the place I feel pain no more

So carry me away from here
To the place where I’ve been before
Set me free my darlin’ dear
To the place I feel pain no more

No more
No more
No more
No more
No more
No more

(NOTE: I know that there is a banjo playing throughout the song but it’s
too faint for me to figure out. It sounds like it’s picking the same
chords as the verses but I can’t really tell for sure.)
