The Ozark Mountain Daredevils – Black Sky lyrics

(Harp & guitar intro)

Well I sure take it with me wherever I go

And you might like to see it but it never does show

Like a wind in the valley that never does blow

Like the grass in the back that you never did mow

It's a black sky formin' on the ridge

It's a woman waitin' standin' on the bridge

It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge

It's everything you do and nothin' that you did

(Harp & guitar ditty)

Well you might see me drivin' in the wrong side of town

And you might see me shinin' when the rain's comin' down

Like a diamond that's hidin' in the lost and found

Like a coon that's runnin' from a red bone hound

It's a black sky formin' on the ridge

It's a woman waitin' standin' on the bridge

It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge

It's everything you do and nothin' that you did

(Harp & guitar ditty)

Well the wood keeps burnin' in the old wood stove

And the cows keep goin' where they done been drove

And a light keeps glowin' in a dead man's cove

And a loom keeps spinnin' where the weave gets wove

It's a black sky formin' on the ridge

It's a woman waitin' standin' on the bridge

It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge

It's everything you do and nothin' that you did
