Emmylou Harris - Blackhawk Lyrics

Well I work the double shift
In a bookstore on St. Clair
While he pushed the burning ingots
In Dofasco stinking air
Where the truth bites and stings
I remember just what we were
As the noon bell rings for
Blackhawk and the white winged dove

Hold on to your aching heart
I'll wipe the liquor from your lips
A small town hero never dies
He fades a bit and then he slips
Down into the blast furnace
In the heat of the open hearth
And at the punch clock he remembers
Blackhawk and the white winged dove

I remember your leather boots
Pointing up into the sky
We fell down to our knees
Over there where the grass grew high
Love hunters in the night
Our faces turned into the wind
Blackhawk where are you know
Blackhawk and the white winged dove
We were Blackhawk where are you know
We were Blackhawk where are you know

Do you still have the ring I gave you
On the banks of Lake Bear
Where I felt certain that I knew you
My cool and distant debonair
Now we drink at Liberty Station
Another cup of muscatel
Wrapped in the strong arms of the Union
Raisin' kids from raisin' hell

  26. John Henry Erasmus

    ń Oomblik se onthou
    Van ons Vader se ewige trou
    Van liefde en genade
    Oorvloedig deur al die jare
    Skink die beker van geluk
    Terwyl ons wag en wag en wag
    Want in die silwer jare
    Is daar baie om nog voor te hoop
    Verhoudings verbrou
    Kan herstel word in liefdevolle trou
    Eensame nagte
    In herinnering bring
    Sonder enige berou
    Liefdevolle Heer
    Skenk asseblief genade
    Om my gedagtes
    Rondom U alleen te bou
    Hier in my silwer jare.

  27. John Henry Erasmus

    Vonkelverse, bruisend deur my are
    Vonkelverse, ek kom nader
    Vonkelverse vir middeljare
    Vonkelverse vir aftreejare

    Dit borrel in my as ek dit sing
    Want wie gee vir aftrede
    n Splinternuwe ring
    ń Ring van vriendskap
    ń Ring van trou
    n Ring van net die mooiste in die lewe onthou

    Dan sing ons vonkelverse
    Want daar is bruising tussen jou en my
    Want daar's ń kitaar
    En ons het ń lied
    ń Vonkelvers wat geheime bied
    Ons deel dit met vriende
    Ons deel dit met lang lang ure
    Vonkelverse, mag daar vir ń oomblik
    Net geluk in almal se oë skiet.

  28. Christine Fougere

    this was my late bf Mike's favourite favourite song. He used to make me sing the harmony.

    Jeff Nielsen

    Emmylou, reminiscencias del alma en el cielo son sus canciones...voz de ángel con un talento extraordinario.

  31. Mary Jo Johnso n

    she always does a great job with all of Daniels music....

  32. Scottish John

    Haven't a clue what you're saying but I agree!!

    kizmi axe

    Hello Scottish John,
    I'm 70 years old--I think about the same as this woman. I watched her career and could never figure out why people liked her. You can't understand a word she says. You would think that she would notice this but she never did. I can't stand her.

  33. afonso70110

    The music of Daniel Lanois is wonderful. And Emmylou too, with his voice that leads us to unknown places. A true wonder. Emmylou is unique.
