Versuri Emmylou Harris - Bang the Drum Slowly



I meant to ask you how to fix that car 
I always meant to ask you about the war 
And what you saw across a bridge too far 
Did it leave a scar 
 
Or how you navigated wings of fire and steel 
Up where heaven had no more secrets to conceal 
And still you found the ground beneath your wheels 
How did it feel 
 
Bang the drum slowly, play the pipe lowly 
To dust be returning from dust we begin 
Bang the drum slowly I'll speak of things holy 
Above and below me world without end 
 
I meant to ask you how when everything seemed lost 
And your fate was in a game of dice they tossed 
There was still that line that you would never cross 
At any cost 
 
I meant to ask you how you lived what you believed 
With nothing but your heart up your sleeve 
And if you ever really were deceived 
By the likes of me 
 
Bang the drum slowly, play the pipe lowly 
To dust be returning from dust we begin 
Bang the drum slowly I'll speak of things holy 
Above and below me world without end 
 
Gone now is the day and gone the sun 
There is peace tonight all over Arlington 
But the songs of my life will still be sung 
By the light of the moon you hung 
 
I meant to ask you how to plow that field 
I meant to bring you water from the well 
And be the one beside you when you fell 
Could you tell 
 
Bang the drum slowly, play the pipe lowly 
To dust be returning from dust we begin 
Bang the drum slowly I'll speak of things holy 
Above and below me world without end
