Lyrics

HEALESVILLE

ON SULTRY SATIN SHEETS OF NIGHT
BY AUTUMN?S BLANKET COLD AND DAMP
THE MOON IS SHINING LANTERN WHITE AND BY ITS LIGHT
I FIND THE ROAD TO HEALESVILLE

CHORUS:
AND I MAY GO THERE SLOWLY
I MAY GO THERE SOON
I MAY GET THERE QUICKER THAN YOU KNOW
ROLLIN LIKE A RIVER
MOVE LIKE WIND ON WATER
AND YOU CAN COME THERE WITH ME WHEN I GO
WHEN I GO TO HEALESVILLE

I MAY RIDE A GALLANT HORSE
RIGHT OUT OF THE SOUTHERN CROSS
LOSE MY WAY AND FIND THE LOST
BEGGARS MEET ME ON THE ROAD TO HEALESVILLE


CHORUS


HER GENTLE HANDS WILL SOOTHE THESE SHOULDERS
WHERE THE LOAD WAS HARDEST
WHEN THE WIND IS BLOWING COLDER
SHE WILL REAP THE HARVEST OUT IN HEALES VILLE
OH HEALESVILLE - I?M GOIN DOWN TO HEALESVILLE

PICTURES IN THE BLOOD RED SAND
PUT THERE BY SOME ANCIENT HAND
AM I IN THE PROMISED LAND OR DO I STAND
A STONES-THROW OUT OF HEALESVILLE

CHORUS

Great tune! Strong lead vocal, good hook, arrangement, good commercial potential.
