lyrics

Black Feathers

Black feathers flyin’ free from the mountain top/
stirrin’ around the bend.
I was a pretty girl in the countryside/
now it’s years from then.
Come sing a little song to me Abigail/
daughter I never knew.
One thing about this land that I love/
is a man whose eyes aren’t blue.

Hazel eyes in the summertime/
washing the fears from off my back.
He ain’t say a lot of words/
but I know that the way he looks at me is right on track.
Don’t let a little girl travel down/
a clean and dirtless road.
It ain’t an awful way to go/
but I heard you just end up old.

Don’t you know you should test the water/
‘fore you drink it down.
Jumpin’ in is just a little different/
float until you touch the ground.

All my friends have got these plans/
to grow up big and tall.
So they reach the highest branch of the apple tree/
shake it watch ‘em fall.
You’ve a funny little way/
of takin’ the air from out my lungs.
It’s a dirty little trick/
but you like to say it’s all in fun.
And you, you won’t ever turn me blue.

Won’t ever treat me/
like the other boys they used to do.

Don’t you know you should test water/
‘fore you drink it down.
Jumpin’ in is just a little different/
float until you touch the ground.

Black feathers flyin’ free from the mountain top/
stirrin’ around the bed.
I was a pretty girl in the countryside/
now it’s years from then.
