Iron & Wine

Iron & Wine - Hickory

rate me

he kissed her once as she leaned on the windowsill

she'll never love him but knows that her father will

her fallen fruit is all rotten in the middle but her

breast never dries when he's hungry

the money came and she died in her rocking chair

the window wide and the rain in her braided hair

a letter locked in the pattern of her knuckle

like a hymn to the house she was making

blind and whistling just around the corner and there's a

wind that is whispering something

strong as hell but not hickory rooted

she kissed him once cause he gave her a cigarette

and turned around but he waits like a turned down bed

and summer left like her walking with another and a

sound of a church bell ringing

the money came and he died like a butterfly

a buried star and the haze of the city lights

a gun went off and her mother dropped her baby on the

blue feathered wing - we were lucky

blind and whistling just around the corner and there's a

wind that is whispering something

strong as hell but not hickory rooted
