  Slow Train Coming session 4, Muscle Shoals Studio, Sheffield AL - 3.may.1979, album version  

They ask me how i feel
If my love is reel 
An' i know i'll make it thru
An' they, they look at me an' frown
They'd like to drive me from this town
They don't want me around
'Cause i believe in you.

They show me to the door
They say don't come back no more
'Cause i don't be like they'd like me to
An' i walk out on my own
A thousand miles from home
But i don't feel alone
'Cause i believe in you.

I believe in you even thru the tears an' the laughter
I believe in you even tho we be apart
I believe in you even on the mornin' after
Oh, when the dawn is nearin'
Oh, when the night is disappearin'
Oh, this feeelin's still in my heart.

Don't let me drift too far
Keep me where you are
Where i will always be renewed
An' that which you've given today
Is worth more than i can pay
An' no matter what they say
I believe in you.

I believe in you when winter turns to summer
I believe in you when white turns to black
I believe in you even tho i be outnumbered
Oh, tho the earth may shake me
Oh, tho my friends forsake me
Oh, even that couldn't make me go back.

Don't let me change my heart
Keep me set apart
From all the plans they do pursue
An' i, i don't mind the pain
Don't mind the drivin rain
I know i will sustain
'Cause i believe in you.  up
