Your moon has come out tonight
Round as a crying eye
Round as a ringlet of smoke
From your smoke signal sky

I am the oak and the maple
I have covered my roots
You are the dancing virginia
In black leather boots

Come as the silver morning
Come as a dragonfly
Come as my sleeping sister
Through the midnight sky

Chorus:
Cover me with your fires ashes
Cover me with your midnight veil
Cover me with your smokey river
Cover me, dancing virginia

Theres a pain in my side
And it's killing me
There's a field of crows
Now a black sea

And i've called upon the hills
And i've called upon the soil
And they've screamed in my ear
Where's your heart boy?

Chorus:
Cover me with your fires ashes.....

Your moon has come out tonight
Round as a crying eye
Round as a ringlet of smoke
From your smoke signal sky

Come as the silver morning
Come as a dragonfly
Come as my sleeping sister
Through the midnight sky

Cover me with your fire's ashes
Cover me with your midnight veil
Cover me with your smokey river
Cover me, dancing virginia
Cover me with your revelation
Cover me with your sorrows tale
Cover me with your holy water
Cover me, dancing virginia

The grey elephant folds of adventure
The blue oasis of meditaion
The feathered touch of a sleepy afternoon
Beaneath the tent of a palmetto haven
And I'm rising upwards from my feet
As children run side by side with their elation
