I've traveled the world
And the seven bright seas
For the keys to these riddles you've lain before me
Been used and abused
By these lesser deities
For to ease my disease I'm on bended knees
To my lonely lovely girl in the coat

I prayed your heart
I danced for rain
Some wise men, shepherds and indians came
Been chased and mistreated
Been put down to shame
All the same if I bring rain
That's the name of the game
To my lonely lovely girl in the coat

Cause winter is where she abides all the while
And hillsides are covered in snow
The summertime sister sends letters to me
She speaks with a voice that I know
A voice that I know

In a broke down truck on the edge of this town
With a dusty old world spinning round and round
Been caught, I been shot, I been buried alive
But that's nothing compared to the look in her eye
To my lonely lovely girl in the coat

Cause winter is where she abides all the while
And hillsides are covered in snow
The summertime sister sends letters to me
She speaks with a voice that I know
A voice that I know

Na, na na na, na na na
Na na na, na na na,
Na na na, na na na

Na, na na na, na na na
Na na na, na na na,
Na na na, na na na

    The first time i heard this song i was waiting for my buddy in his volkswagen while he ran in to run some errands. We were in anchorage, ak and we were both leaving town in a few days, he in his van and i on a plane to central america. It was the last time i ever saw him and i restarted the song three times just to catch all the lyrics. To me this song will always mean seasons changing, reflections on the spontaneity of life and the missed opportunity to talk to the demure woman in the coat at the bar who left before the set was over and you had your chance. Great tune, forever in my heart...
