lyrics

"The Tide Had Come In"

We waded out in the shallows; we walked in the sand
Then lay beneath a willow. I had your hair in my hand
We fell asleep to the whistle of a breeze through the leaves
Far from your farm and your Henry Lee

I awoke in a puddle. The tide had come in
You had left me a-sleepin to return to your man
I gazed up to heaven and it stared down on me
And I cursed you and your Henry Lee

On the last day of summer, you stayed the night in my bed
I was sleepless from counting every hair on your head
Fell asleep to the whistle of the wind through the screen
Far from your farm and your Henry Lee

I awoke in a puddle. The tide had come in
I was soaked in your blood and face to face with your man
I gazed out to heaven and it stared down on me
From the rage-ridden eyes of Henry Lee

We waded out in the shallows; we walked in the sand
I kneeled beneath the willow. He had gun in his hand
The night was a whistle of the breeze through the trees
And I cursed you and your Henry Lee

I awoke in a puddle. The tide had come in
I was kickin and screamin. Gun pressed tight to my skin
Held my face in the water. Had my hair in his hand
