Versuri Emmylou Harris - Blackhawk



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 
And the white winged dove 
We were Blackhawk 
And the white winged dove 
 
Do you still have the ring I gave 
On the banks of Lake Black 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 
 
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 
And the white winged dove 
We were Blackhawk 
And the white winged dove 
 
We were Blackhawk 
And the white winged dove 
We were Blackhawk 
And the white winged dove 
 
We were Blackhawk 
And the white winged dove 
We were Blackhawk 
And the white winged dove
