Columbine

Tossin’ hair a-ravin’
Eyes of flashin’ blue
All the livin’ that you’re savin’
Won’t buy you dreams for you

Cut yourself a columbine
Tear it from the stem
Now breathe upon the petals fine
And throw them to the wind…

*****

Watch the petals dancin’
See them twirl and sing
All your pride and prancin’
How much does it mean?

Watch the petals start to fly
And then come falling down
Hear the wind begin to cry
As she sees some touch the ground…

*****

Ah, lady, like the flower fair
Some day you’ll have to fall
And you can find me standin’ there
To catch you if you crawl

Tossin’ hair a-ravin’
Eyes of flashin’ blue
All the livin’ that you’re savin’
Won’t buy you dreams for you…

**********

Tossing hair a-raving

Eyes of flashing blue

All the living that you’re saving

Won’t buy your dreams for you

Cut yourself a columbine

Tear it from the stem

Now breathe upon the petals fine

And throw them to the wind

Watch the petals dancing

See ’em twirl and sing

Now all your pride and prancing

How much does it mean?

Watch the petals start to fly

And then come falling down

I hear the wind begin to cry

As she sees ’em touch the ground

Awe, lady, like the flower fair

Someday you’ll have to fall

And you can find me standing there

To catch you if you fall

Tossing hair a-raving

Eyes of flashing blue

All the living that you’re saving

Won’t buy your dreams for you
