Here's an Owl Feather for Blue Rabbit (sounds like a Monty Python code). I love this song. Happy to pass it along. May he rest in peace.

OWL FEATHER
By John Hartford

There's a tiny owl feather in the puzzle over there
On the mantle by the ladle and my darlin' put it there.
She says it's from the scary bird was perched perchance to scare
The little hand that pets me every night.

CHORUS: Oh, little cabin in the glen so green,
Prettiest little cabin that I ever have seen,
My darlin' waits there for me with her little tambourine,
Tappin' out the rhythm of the rain.

I can't go back 'cause I never left this little cabin home,
With a wraparound porch and a dog trot and a well of granite stone,
And an old wet dog all slobbered down with the end of an old wet bone,
Puffin' like a locomotive on an old freight train.

CHORUS

Now I'm laying in this tanning bed dreamin' of my youth.
The gangsta rap and the cowboy hat just make me feel uncouth,
But a vision of my mother is a vision of truth,
Hangin' out the wash so long ago.

Oh, little cabin in the glen so green,
Prettiest little cabin that I ever have seen,
My darlin' waits there for me with her little tambourine,
Tappin' out the rhythm of the rain,
Beatin' out the rhythm of the blues,
Beatin' out the rhythm of the rain,
Observin' the all-time high-water mark of the 1927 flood,
Beatin' out the rhythm of the rain.
