LEIF VOLLEBEKK

BIG SKY COUNTRY

Red-winged blackbird sitting on a cattail’s end
Red-winged blackbird sitting on a cattail’s end
Light enough to be there, heavy enough to bend
Red-winged blackbird sitting on a cattail’s end

Meet me where the Land of the Living Skies meets Big Sky Country
Meet me where the Land of the Living Skies meets Big Sky Country
I wish my tears were in your eyes and your eyes were on me
Meet me where the Land of the Living Skies meets Big Sky Country

Last time I saw you, you disappeared down the street before the bend
Last time I saw you, you disappeared down the street before the bend
I said, hey, hey, my Eliza, I squint to blur my eyes until when
The street looked like a cattail with you at its end
