lyrics

I heard
that you could sing
fine old songs
with an old country voice
and you look into the pages
of the old leather bound Bible
with drawings of centurions
and we both walked down to that
gilded valley
in and around the sacred gardens
and you looked into my eyes
and you knew exactly
just what I was
-nail the flesh to the wood

Now look out to
those mountainsides
whose jagged peaks
descend down through
snow-banked slopes and dives
down through
down through
down through
down through
down down down
down through
down through
down down down down
down through-down

And look into
that long span of blue sky
and I ask you this
do you remember
longer summer afternoons
walking barefoot down the garden path

So forget about the clear blue sky
and those mountainsides, that I am
