And I saw the world

Chanson : Loom of the Land, The Walkabouts



Paroles


Was the dirty end of winter Along the loom of the land When I walked with sweet Henry Hand upon hand


And the wind it bit bitter For a girl of no means With no shoes on her feet And a knife in her jeans


Along the loom of the land The mission bells peeled From the tower at Saint Mary's Down to reprobate fields


And I saw the world All blessed and bright And Henry breathed softly In the majestic night


Oh baby, please don't cry And try to keep Your little head upon my shoulder Now we'll go to sleep


The elms and the poplars Were turning their backs Past the rumbling station We followed their tracks


My hands, they burned In the folds of his coat Breathing milky white air From deep in his throat


Oh baby, please don't cry And try to keep Your little head upon my shoulder Now we'll go to sleep


I told him the moon Was a magical thing That it shone gold in winter And silver in spring


And we walked and we walked Across the endless sands Just me and my Henry Along the loom of the land


Oh baby, please don't cry And try to keep Oh baby, please don't cry And try to keep Your little head upon my shoulder Now we'll go to sleep
