    (There'll be peace in the valley for him how we pray

    I was with Red Foley the night he passed away)

    We was down in Port Wayne Indiana the night the Lord took Red away

    And we had to get there a little early cause we had a matinee

    And when Red first went on stage it seemed that he
    moved and talked a little slow

    But of course he went on to do his regular great show

    So soon the afternoon show was over with and we all
    went down the street and ate

    Red said he wasn't very hungry but he came along anyway

    And we got done eaten and came back to the last show

    But the thing just would be Red's very last well who's to know

    And when he went on the stage for his own ten thousandth time

    We was all back to the curtains there just shootin' the lines

    But when he sang Peace In The Valley there was such a quiet still

    I know I'll never forget it and anyone that was there never will

    Well soon the last show was over with

    And I went back to the hotel and Red gave me a call

    I told him to come on over I was just starin' at the four walls

    So he came over to my room he was just next door there

    Lit a cigarette and sat down in the chair

    And he started talkin' bout all the worries that a country music singer has

    I said old Red I reckon it's not that bad

    He said yeah you're workin' a lot now and you'll have 'em some day

    Your dad had 'em and I have 'em I guess it's just meant that way

    Then he got up and these were the last words he said

    I'm awful tired now Hank and I've got to go to bed

    And while I layed there with Red just a few steps away

    The angels came and took him into the last golden stage

    (There'll be peace in the valley for him how we pray

    I was with Red Foley the night he passed away)
