Subject: Lyr Add: FAREWELL TO THE NORTH (Ian and Sylvia)
Here's what I think I hear. I heard it on Spotify:


FAREWELL TO THE NORTH
As recorded by Ian and Sylvia on "Nashville" (2006)

1. Don't the trees look great tonight,
Like black lace on a fading sky?
And the sun's gone westward on the run,
Leaving me behind with deeds undone.

CHORUS: Old tracks covered by new snow
Pull up my shallow roots and go.

2. Watch the silver ice down the road
Walk on salt and drive safely home.
I'll be far across the line come dawn,
And I've laid my bets and the game goes on. CHORUS

3. The old gray wolf has passed on my hill.
Down the strip the hawk smiles and waits.
May they keep the man far from their door,
Breathing life and colors as before. CHORUS

4. But don't... [repeat first verse] CHORUS
