Henry Jamison Dallas Love Field Lyrics

She sings of apple trees and blossoms

And she called me from Dallas Love Field

As the winter storm warning went on taunting me

When we met we were two bright eyed alcoholics

In the spring time in the year of our lord

As we glanced the gilded edges of our identities

Whatever the way

Of the lover’s lot

Black as the kettle’s the hypocrite pot

Often than more, more often than not

So come here baby

In the dark and out

Ridin’ our bikes to the dive bar at the edge of town

Was it some shrill and false persona

That was leadin’ me around?

Well my right hand offended me

But the left hand was waving free

Till it knocked me out

Did it? Did it? Did it? Did it?

Did it? Did it? Did it? Did it?

Crossed the street from the bar to the cathedral and we heard Vespers sung by the choir

And in ghostly vestments we waltzed down the aisle

To be honest babe, I never saw you comin’ no

Though I did believe the world to be a starry dome

Did it, did it, did it, I

So maybe we take the longer way

To a cosmic home, a place to stay

Spinning lanterns in a field until the end of days

Whatever the way

Of the lover’s lot

Black as the kettle’s the hypocrite pot

Often than more, more often than not

So come here baby

In the darkening hour

Ridin’ our bikes to the dive bar at the edge of town

Was it some shrill and false persona

That was leadin’ me around?

Well my right hand offended me

But the left hand was waving free

Till it knocked me out

Did it? Did it? Did it? Did it?

Did it? Did it? Did it? Did it?

Well my right hand offended me

So I bent down on bended knee

And I cut it off

Did I? Did I? Did I?

Did I? Did I? Did I?
