Henry Jamison Boys Lyrics

Thought I was drowning in my bed

Couldn’t get the moon out of my head

So I awoke before the break of day

And walked along the coast of Galway

Sitting at the boardwalk bar, drinking a whiskey

Feeling all the rage of a modern man

We used to feel our rage just like the sea

Now we get it on an installment plan

All my love

To you and yours

And all the baby boys, they’re dressing them in blue

Teaching them that life’s a war

I guess I’m a long way from where I was

Drunk off my ass in some suburban town

I betrayed my friend, nineteen and Darwinian

I’ll never live that down

But I fell into a good girl’s good graces

And I poured my heart right into hers

She’s more an Artemis in muddy laces

Than a Venus in furs

All my love

To you and yours

And all the college boys, they’re dressing up in suits

Thinking life’s a war

Spring is coming

Let me be like cherry tree

Renewed and fruitful

All my love

To you and yours

And all the baby boys, they’re dressing them in blue

Teaching them that life’s a war

All my love

To you and yours

And all the college boys, they’re dressing up in suits

Thinking life’s a war
