Old Crow



Old crow Tired and lazy' against the day Dark skies Lost in blacks and whites and grays Howling north wind Sure takes a man's fight away



Wastelands, A dreamer's home on his best day Hard rain Drops the leaves and makes the colors fade And talks cheap, But for the words of time they'll ave the last say Oh the words of time, they'll
have the last say



And the harvest is in, it wasn't much May I have enough to get by The baskets were light, not a muscle ached And somehow I feel I'm going to die The winter is coming and the signs say hard I've
never seen such a haunting sky



For on the mountains, frost in the wind And somehow I feel I'm going to die Full moon Lonely above the old oak tree line Old crow Hanging empty in the black sky And a nighthawk Circles her in
silence as she flies Old crow, all alone she flies

Old Crow

?

Old crow

Tired and lazy' against the day

Dark skies

Lost in blacks and whites and grays

Howling north wind

Sure takes a man's fight away

?

Wastelands,

A dreamer's home on his best day

Hard rain

Drops the leaves and makes the colors fade

And talks cheap,

But for the words of time they'll ave the last say

Oh the words of time, they'll have the last say

?

And the harvest is in, it wasn't much

May I have enough to get by

The baskets were light, not a muscle ached

And somehow I feel I'm going to die

The winter is coming and the signs say hard

I've never seen such a haunting sky

?

For on the mountains, frost in the wind

And somehow I feel I'm going to die

Full moon

Lonely above the old oak tree line

Old crow

Hanging empty in the black sky

And a nighthawk

Circles her in silence as she flies

Old crow, all alone she flies
