lyrics

Such bitter winds blow
And we've heard it all day.
There's nothing between these fencepost rows
To make the dirt decide to stay.

Last spring when we pruned the roses,
Red snow on the ground.
Put my ear to a fencepost
Couldn't hear a sound.

And now there's a light rain falling,
Everything's gonna be fine.
Except maybe now we're wishing
It would all be dry.

And now there's a light rain falling,
Everything's gonna be fine.
Except maybe now we're wishing
It would be all day, be all night.

Wire stretched between fenceposts.
Wire stretched on the wall.
Talking to a nail in a fencepost;
Talking at the wall.

This fall when I plow the fields under
I'll be thinking only of you:
Shadow shaped from flock of starling
Flying south, too.

And now there's a light rain falling,
Everything's gonna be fine.
Except maybe now we're wishing
It would all be dry.

And now there's a light rain falling,
Everything's gonna be fine.
Except maybe now we're wishing
You could stay all day, stay all night.

Wrap up my troubles in a cloth
And tie it round my waist.
I'm gonna go for a long long walk.
Be gone a hundred days.

And now there's a light rain falling,
Everything's gonna be fine.
Except maybe now we're wishing
It would all be dry.

Nobody got nothing to say
That ain't better shown or done.
Here, let me demonstrate:
Gotta go. Gotta run.
