Walkabouts

Walkabouts - Loom of The Land

rate me

It was the dirty end of winter

It was the dirty end of winter

Along the loom of the land

Along the loom of the land

When I walked with sweet henry

When I walked with sweet henry

Hand upon hand

Hand upon hand

And the wind it bit bitter

And the wind it bit bitter

For a girl of no means

For a girl of no means

With no shoes on her feet

With no shoes on her feet

And a knife in her jeans

And a knife in her jeans

Along the loom of the land

Along the loom of the land

The mission bells peeled

The mission bells peeled

From the tower at saint mary's

From the tower at saint mary's

Down to reprobate fields

Down to reprobate fields

And I saw (that) the world

And I saw (that) the world

(was) all blessed and bright

(was) all blessed and bright

And henry breathed softly

And henry breathed softly

In the majestic night

In the majestic night

O baby please don't cry

O baby please don't cry

And try to keep

And try to keep

Your little head upon my shoulder

Your little head upon my shoulder

Now we'll go to sleep

Now we'll go to sleep

The elms and the poplars

The elms and the poplars

Were turning their backs

Were turning their backs

Past the rumbling station

Past the rumbling station

We followed their tracks

We followed their tracks

My hands they burned

My hands they burned

In the folds of his coat

In the folds of his coat

Breathing milky white air

Breathing milky white air

From deep in his throat

From deep in his throat

O baby please don't cry

O baby please don't cry

And try to keep

And try to keep

Your little head upon my shoulder

Your little head upon my shoulder

Now we'll go to sleep

Now we'll go to sleep

I told him the moon

I told him the moon

Was a magical thing

Was a magical thing

That it shone gold in winter

That it shone gold in winter

And silver in spring

And silver in spring

And we walked and we walked

And we walked and we walked

Across the endless sands

Across the endless sands

Just me and my henry

Just me and my henry

Along the loom of the land

Along the loom of the land

O baby please don't cry

O baby please don't cry

And try to keep

And try to keep

O baby please don't cry

O baby please don't cry

And try to keep

And try to keep

Your little head upon my shoulder

Your little head upon my shoulder

Now we'll go to sleep

Now we'll go to sleep
