Story behind the song
Live recording of 2007 performance; from the song cycle, HOUSE OF BREAD by Lynn Maudlin, this is Ruth's song to Naomi insisting that she will go wherever her mother-in-law goes. From the Bible, Ruth 1:16 But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God." --all rights reserved-- http://www.moonbirdmusic.us/lyrics_housebread5.htm
Lyrics
copyright 2001 - Moonbird Music Co., all rights reserved http://www.moonbirdmusic.us/lyrics_housebread5.htm --Ruth-- I will not leave you, I will not go I will not stay here and let you go alone For I have caught a glimpse of something life could be I will not leave you I will not leave you I will not leave you - don't ask me. What lies behind me, I know too well I know the lifestyle and I know the hell But I have seen in you the proof of something more I will go with you I will go with you I will go with you - whatever lies before For I don't know the road beyond the river And I don't know how the Lord provides I choose this day, and I am bound unto you Let your people be my people Let your people be my people Let your people be my people --Naomi-- Ruth, you mean well, and I am honored But you'd leave behind everything you've ever known My womb is empty, I'll bear no son for you I have no future, I have no home --Duet-- For I don't know the road beyond the river And I don't know how the Lord provides --Ruth-- I choose this day, and I am bound unto you Let your people be my people Let your people be my people Let your people be my people And your God will be my God.
