New song obsession: The Garden

February 22, 2011 at 9:44 pm Leave a comment


As if the warm weather weren’t enough to tempt me to be working in the garden, I heard this amazing song on KXCV’s amazing Rhythm and Roots program two weeks ago and it’s been on constant repeat.

Check out Ruth Moody’s The Garden CD if you get a chance, it’s amazing, bluegrassy goodness.

And the beautiful lyrics of The Garden:

O light shine down on me
You know what I need
Shine down on me
Shine down on the garden

Sweet earth alive under me
You know what I need
Cradle me like a seed
As I lay in the garden

O wise and beautiful tree
Standing high over me
Oh the things you have seen
Tell me your story in the garden
Tell it to me in the garden

And tell me
How long have we slept
How long have we wept
There’s work to be done

Sky above
so vast and so deep
You know what I need
Rain down on me
Rain down on the garden

O light surrounding me
Sweet mystery
In everything I see
Come and find me in the garden

And tell me
How long have we slept
How long have we wept
There is work to be done
In the garden


*Dreamy sigh*
