MOUNTAIN MEADOWS - LYRICS
Finger and Tongues
The hell you’re in from where I stand

No we don’t mind no that you’ve run and hid

When the silver bees fly you won’t be saved

And they won’t take you to a better place


Oh, they weigh you down with the memories of our bones

And they bury you in the schoolyard with their finger and their thumbs

And oh, they parade us out to the valley of the sun

And as you lay prostrate on the interstate they cut out all our tongues


The little ones were all they saved

As they laid them open on the salty plains

They claimed the wild ones were the ones to blame

As they buried families with their names


Oh, they weigh you down with the memories of our bones

And they bury you in the schoolyard with their finger and their thumbs

And oh, they parade us out to the valley of the sun

And as you lay prostrate on the interstate they cut out all our tongues


Where they take our bones

And where they take our bones

And where they take our bones

And well they take our bones

T-BILL
Come on Dad

Come on down

And sing that song

As we right that smile

Write it all down for you
Well I’ll write it all down for you

Bitter teeth bitter tunes bitter you

Well you sew well you sew what you say

Still you kill your love when you can


And why?

Why would you kill this world my son

And why?

Why would you leave it all for naught


Why would these words have claimed come from you?

The poisoned pills in the tears and the truth

Well you sew well you sew what you said

Still you kill the love when you can


And why?

Why would you kill this world my son

And why?

Why would you leave it all for naught

But the world well it sets beneath those stars
Well I’ll write it all down for you

Bitter teeth bitter tunes bitter you

Well you sew well you sew what you say

Still you kill the love when you can


And why?

Why would you kill this world my son

And why?

Why would you leave it all for naught

But the world well it sets beneath your scars
Without Again
The road divides ahead

He’s wide awake in bed

Unaware but suspicious this is happening to him again
His love went south

And he’ll go West

A mountain of song couldn’t fill the hole in his chest that she left

When she said he was like the rest


So get up

Get out


What are you down about

Put it back on the shelf

Just have to go without again
So get up

Get out


What are you down about

Put it back on the shelf

Just have to go without again
The road divides ahead

He’s wide awake in bed

Put it back on the shelf

Just have to go without again


Garden River
I once kissed a girl

See lately in my time

I keep losing faith in these dusty dirty dives

She says where will you be

In your dying days

Why do you still believe the Soo can be saved?


Son, well they’ll take you down

Soon they’ll be right around

Son well they’ll take you down stomp on your heart and their gone
I keep lying here

Starring at this fading bulb

Shadows pass underneath as they curse the lives they’ve bought

Words whispered in my ear

Telling me its time to go
Son well they’ll take you down

Soon they’ll be right around

Son well they’ll take you down stomp on your heart steal all your love and their gone

Valley Town


When the wind bends the trees

And them clouds are pushin east,

Come on inside.

Dry your clothes,

Warm your bones,

Fill your glass and set yourself at ease.

When the dust in your room

Covers all that you do,

Get yourself outside.

Morning train

Is pulling away,

Hear the whistle fade and set yourself at ease.

There's a house by the hill

How I long for her still

My home sweet home

Home Sweet Home.


Notes
She put pen to page

Then raised us from the floor

She whistled the tune

That welcomed in the trains

Stood straight and right

The beacon and the light

She put pen to page

Then raised us from the floor

She whistled the tune

That welcomed in the trains

Stood straight and right

The beacon for the fight

She put pen to page

That opened all the doors


Woodward Ave.
Well I’ll take you riding

But the rouse sits upon our cheeks

These clouds won’t stay forever

And these leaves well they won’t see


I’ll take you riding in my Ford my model-T
These clowns will be mistaken

The souls we save are creased

Their bodies roll off lines

Into the arms of mass appeal


I’ll hold you in my arms now as we stroll down the boulevard
And how we love the evening in gaslight flooded streets

We pour into the dance halls

Where the floors jump through our feet
As night gives way to day now

We wake beneath our tree

Chased back into hiding

Where no one ever sees


I’ll take you riding in my Ford my model-T
31 years
Countless wandering days

In a wagon train parade,

with a prairie serenade.

We did try to take that mountain,

But the mountain had its way.

Back at the fort,

with exhausted winter stores,

and some friends beneath the floor.

We won't live to see that spring,

or what we came out here for.

The Body
It was well into June and the sun was lost when we came upon her there

It had been some time it had been a while since she drew her dying breath

See the river ran low arm wounds deep what did you do to deserve these

Kristin our friend
It has been so long since she’s been here darling oh say Madeline

We’ll bring you home


Under the moon she trusted lies well they took her to her grave

In the end Paul took her soul


It has been so long since she’s been here darling oh say Madeline

We’ll bring you home

Miss You Now
Tuesdays and Saturdays

I’d walk you home

So you’d not be alone

So you’d not be alone

I don’t know
Sixteen and lost in your ways

You fear you’d not be saved

You fear you’d not be saved

Well I don’t know


And day by day by day I want to pick up the phone

got to leave it alone

got to leave it alone

cause I miss you now

I miss you now

Well I’ve been missing all your kisses

I’m missing all your misses

Why can’t I be with you tonight

I miss you now

I miss you now

I miss you now

Well I miss you


And day by day by day I want to pick up the phone

got to leave it alone

got to leave it alone

cause I miss you now

I miss you now

I miss you now

Well I miss you
Sixteen and lost in your ways

You fear you’d not be saved

You fear you’d not be saved

Well I miss you now

I miss you now

I miss you now


Well I’ve been missing all your kisses

I’m missing all your misses

Why can’t you be with me tonight

I miss you now

I miss you now

I miss you now



Well I miss you
