Back in the spring
When I thought of those things
I dodged the questions
I ducked the clouds
There were shadows in my heartland
Back in the fall when I knew it all
The wrong seemed right
And the right seemed wrong
There were shadows in the backyard
Listen boy when he talks to you
Listen to what he says
He wore a familiar face I know
Wake up and take a feel
A familiar face I saw
Wake up and take a feel
Back in the fall when I knew it all
I dodged the questions
I ducked the clouds
There were shadows in my homeland
Back in the spring
I thought of those things
In my mind
Listen boy when he talks to you
Won't you listen to what he says
He wore a familiar face I know
Wake up and take a feel
A familiar face I saw
Wake up and take a feel
