Lyrics

UNDERHILL Ken LehnigĀ© 2002

I LOVE YOUR GREENING HILLS THERE
MIST CARESSING YOUR WILD WAYS
YOUR HAIR FLOWS LIKE THE GIFT OF SPRING
WINDING DOWN MELANCHOLY DAYS
WE'RE BESET WITH DIRE OPINIONS
TOPPED WILD OLD RUST AND RAGE
WE'VE FORGOTTEN THE REASONS FOR PLEASURE
AS HISTORY TURNS ANOTHER PAGE
YOU DIED DOWN BY THE RIVER
YOU FOUGHT THERE CHILLED TO THE BONE
I'M AFRAID YOU'LL NOT FIND ME THERE
CARRYING THE LIGHT BACK HOME
LADIES YOU WERE A GIVING SORT AND YOUR MEN ARE SINGULAR TRUE
WHEN THE SINS OF REVENGE SETS IN, NOW WE JUSTIFY ALL THAT WE DO
WE PUT UP ALL OUR CHILDREN, WE LAMENT IN OUR GRAND HALLS
WE FORFEIT ALL THE GIFTS OF LIVING, UNDER HILL WE GRIEVE FOR IT ALL
IN OUR GRIEF WE BECOME MUCH SMALLER IN TIME WE'LL ALL DISAPPEAR
GONE FROM THE LIVING LIGHT OF DAY OUR LIVES FORGOTTEN BUT STILL HELD DEAR
WE DIED DOWN BY THE RIVER
WE FOUGHT THERE CHILLED TO THE BONE
I'M AFRAID YOU'LL NOT FIND ME THERE
CARRYING THE LIGHT BACK HOME
PUT OUT THEN A GOBLET BEFORE YOU GO TO BED
WE GIVE BLESSING TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE
GOLD FOR A CRUST OF KIND BREAD
WE DIED DOWN BY THE RIVER
WE FOUGHT THERE CHILLED TO THE BONE
I'M AFRAID YOU'LL NOT FIND ME THERE
CARRYING THE LIGHT BACK HOME

I really loved your voice on this ....great instrumentation, harmonies worked well....your voice has a very soothing quality about it in this song.
