Laura Veirs – Margaret Sands lyrics
[Verse 1]
Scuttling claws have cleaned her hands
Rising and falling
In the whirlpool sand
You, you who turn the wheel
Your eyes of green and steel
Consider Margaret Sands

[Chorus]
How the gulls cry (how the gulls cry)
How the sunlight fans
Gliding ‘bove the bones (gliding ‘bove the bones)
Of Margaret Sands

[Verse 2]
Now she’s married to the swell
She’s swaying in the shells
A whisper in the waves
How I listen as I sail
Straight-backed and pale
Her opalescent gaze

[Chorus]
How the gulls cry (how the gulls cry)
How the sunlight fans
Gliding ‘bove the bones (gliding ‘bove the bones)
Of Margaret Sands

[Outro]
Now she’s married to the swell
And she’s swaying in the shells
