lyrics

the wind is blowing in a vacant lot
dancing leaves and a deck of cards
Lady Day is singing in the yard
and the old man is drinking Scotch

blue morning glories on the wall
that child's sitting on the cellar door
house cats and a backyard dog
you better pray for us

bombs are dropping in the village square
a dead child in his mothers arms
glass castles that are built on sand
broken mirrors and a house of cards

a blue river that may go somewhere
all the hopes and dreams that i can spare
guns in Florida and Texas jails
you better pray for love

a blue river that may go somewhere
all the hopes and dreams that i can spare
guns in Florida and Texas jails
you better pray for love

white roses in my hair hair
dancing boys and baseball girls
warm sunshine on the village square
laughing children on a see-saw

blue morning glories on the wall
that child's sitting on the cellar door
house cats and a backyard dog
i'll have another Scotch
