lyrics

The autumn the blind mare died We buried her facing the river side That night a storm raged all through the hills And I was a child I couldn’t sit still And I was a child I couldn’t sit still I caught him looking at me then Out from the corners now and again I thought nothing of it, just tricks of the dust They said he’s a man I could trust They said he’s a man that I could trust So I didn’t tell my mother about the time The picnic table blood stains like wine I washed my clothes down by the riverside My blind mare told me it was alright Told me it was alright I didn’t scream and I didn’t cry My eyes were fixed on the darkening sky The fox thinks nothing of the dove that he kills I was a child and I couldn’t sit still A prairie wind circled round the barn They say winter’s coming and you’ve been warned That night a storm raged on through the hills I was a child and I couldn’t sit still
