lyrics

wailing from the porch I says
‘tell all the people, that I wont be there’
I’m going to rest my head, where the road bends
near the brook I hear

the cuckoo calls

dry your weeping eyes, she says
it’s nothing but hard times
soon will go
but I had only eyes for the willow/oh I had only eyes for you alone

I drank the water
and It trickled down my face
I saw a mama, a mama and her babe

you come here to take a gander
I come here to run away

the cuckoo calls
I knew our days were numbered

I drank the water
and It trickled down my face
I saw a mama, a mama and her babe

I tried to see the days turn,
and the seasons change
going up the road in may
tressed and in vein
