lyrics

Fair Mind, Maker, Weeper, Babe

Lazy peasant walking through the valley
Diggin’ up the dark grass
Pining for the grace of a
Lonely water running through a dry spring
What’s it going to make him?
If it don’t kill him?
Fair mind, maker, weeper, babe
There’s a fountain full of my love
The brighter the taste
Make a man out of fate

Old man river wake me from my slumber
I’ve been waitin’, ever changin’
Young daughter swan asleep by the reeds
Guardin’ the true light that beckon beneath
Fair mind, maker, weeper, babe
There’s a fountain full of my love
The brighter the taste
Make a man out of fate

Beckonin’ the cage of a fast heart
Beckonin’ the fall wracked with pain
And the new silent man Combs his mane

Fair mind, maker, weeper, babe
There’s a fountain full of my love
The brighter the taste
Make a man out of fate
