Black Sky

     
 

Well I sure take it with me wherever I go

And you might like to see it but it never does show

Like a wind in the valley that never does blow

Like the grass in the back you never did mow

 

It's a black sky formin' on the ridge

It's a woman waitin', standin' on the bridge

It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge

It's everything you do and nothin' that you did

 

Well you might see me drivin' in the wrong side of town

And you might see me shinin' when the rain's comin' down

Like a diamond that's hidin' in the lost and found

Like a coon that's runnin' from a red bone hound

 

It's a black sky formin' on the ridge

It's a woman waitin', standin' on the bridge

It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge

It's everything you do and nothin' that you did

 

Wo-o-o talking bout Black Sky

Talkiní bout a Black Sky

 

Well the wood keeps burnin' in the old wood stove

And the cows keep goin' where they done been drove

And a light keeps glowin' in a dead man's cove

And a loom keeps spinnin' where the weave gets wove

It's a black sky formin' on the ridge

It's a woman waitin', standin' on the bridge

It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge

It's everything you do and nothin' that you did

 

Wo-o-o talking bout Black Sky

Talkiní bout Black Sky

Iím talking bout Black Sky

Iím talking bout Black Sky

 

Iím talking bout Black Sky
