The Ozark Mountain Daredevils – Fox lyrics

(Piano & guitar intro)

The rain let up when the sun went down

I was livin' in a sad old story

The moon didn't shine but the train was on time

And the fox looked down on the glory

The fox looked down on the glory

The mare went lame and the fox got blame

There were tracks leadin' down from the trestle

Then someone said that the fox was dead

But no one spoke of the devil

No one spoke of the devil

(Guitar & harp stuff w/cool bass line)

The winter turned spring the valley turned green

The fox burned red in the sunrise

The hawk got shot the thief got caught

And the fox stood still on the hillside

The fox stood still on the hillside

Then you broke up and I broke down

We're all in the soul of the stranger

And I know now what you knew then

The fox just laughed at the danger

The fox just laughed at the danger

(Keyboard & harp stuff)
