Barefoot Valley

Your rain it carves out my mountainsides and
Makes green the trees that we walk beside and
Washes the trail that we left behind for
all souls of those who have come before

Your pain hides under the scattered clouds where
Shadows they cover the scars in your stair
But they pass swiftly just like a bad dream
We keep on walking down by the stream

Down among the leaves i see your hollow face
Searching for a feeling that you can’t replace

But in the Barefoot Valley your river runs clear
The fairy’s on the water and honey’s in your ear
Starlight by the forest in the light of the pine
Weeping of a willow and the pulse of the vine

Everyone is feeling fine

The maze of people twists through the meadow
Talking and weeping in the small borough
They’re picking cattails and braiding their hair
They’re sipping water and running bare

The council fires are burning tonight
All the ladies dancing into the midnight
The spirits floating above the tree’s
Making sweet music for you and me

The bohemian shanty's by the old flower mill
The waterwheel’s is rolling and it’s turning still


And I’m so glad that your feeling fine, today
