Jackson C. Frank - Spanish Moss Lyrics




Rollin' down the sunbeams
Burnin' in the wind
Her hair hung like a sacrament
Our bodies to begin

Spanish moss was a'droppin' down
Just to touch her shinin' skin
And I felt just like a lover
When she asked me to come in

She showed me her possession
Of animals and glass
She said that her body was ended
But I'm a man and I never asked

Laughin' in the cradle
Held there by the past
Her eyes were like some river
Without a shadow cast

Then she opened the picture
Of Lucifer in chains
She said you got no idea
How to feel each time it rains

People on the sidewalk
They don't even know my name
Still I live with my confessions
I expect you do the same

I don't envy your position
You know the shark goes where he'll please
Many a'net has been broken
In the arms of the open sea

And if you had the time, you know
You could rock me on the deep
'Cause I know that you're not some stranger
From the cities of my sleep

Rollin' down the sunbeams
Burning in the wind
Her hair hung like a sacrament
Our bodies to begin

Spanish moss was a'droppin' down
Just to touch her shinin' skin
And I felt just like some lover
When she asked me to come in
Yes, I felt just like a lover
When she asked me to come in
