2. Long Lost Time

Issa and I

Issa and I

“Hey now mama won’t you walk with me?” was the original working lyric, something I heard from my daughter (she writes all my good songs).  Sometimes you have to travel great distances, both physically and mentally in search for meaning; only to find the answers were at home all along.

Yellow moon won’t you walk with me?
Along the shady road ‘neath the live oak trees
There’s darkness where the wheels turn low
Coming down that hill to the valley below 

Hey now mama won’t you rescue me?
I’m lost out here in the wild country
I’m a purple diamond at the break of day
Come night time I’m fading away

If I come back won’t you let me stay?
Oh yellow moon won’t you light the way? 

Yellow moon won’t you light the way?
Along the dim lines of this blue highway
A double rose and a shot of love
Those two things that I’m dreaming of
A shot of love and a double rose
Depths of desire I will not know

Yellow moon won’t you walk with me?
Along the shady road ‘neath the live oak trees
I know I’ve been gone a long lost time
Searching the shadows of my worried mind
I went looking for that love of mine
Won’t you send me home along the straightest line
