She walked as she talked with those tears running down. She moved as the sea, came for me. She came to the town, looking around, she cried a lot for me. I swallowed my fear, I drew her near and I broke her pretty white mouth. I will find me a boat, I will find me a boat, I will find me a boat - or a sea.
Peggy Gordon 05:45
I am in love, I can't deny it but it's not for you to tell the whole world of it. My heart lies sore within my breast, a troubled mind can know no rest. I leaned myself on a cask of brandy. It was my fancy, I do declare. For when I'm drinking, I'm seldom thinking, just wishing you were here. I wish I was in a lonely valley, where women could not be found. Where small birds raise their voices and every moment a different sound. O Peggy Gordon, you are my darling. Sit down now upon my knee and tell me the reason, why I am slighted by thee?
Wolf I have thee in my palm, obey me boy the day aint long. Pups are hidden in thy belly, I'll see to them when I destroy thee. Wolf, I'll have thee before long; been stealing sheep, you've gotten strong. Don't go crawling in the gulley, wait until my aim is steady. Wolf, there'll be a yellow moon, shining softly, all alone. Don't come running from the prairie, wait until my aim is steady.
Early days I burn my heart out. Found a tin of cigarette smells. You had burning gold eyes. Did you dream about the white deer, falling . . . .
O John sing thy songs to me, of love and beauty's melody. My sorrows sink beneath distress. My deepest griefs are sorrowless. O John sing thy songs to me, of love and beauty's melody. So used to gloom and cares am I, my tearless troubles seem like joy. O John sing thy songs to me, of love and beauty's melody. To be beloved is all I need and those I love, I love indeed. O John sing thy songs to me.
