DT Lyrics:





Subject: Like black lace on fading sky-Farewell to the Nort
From: yerbacat
Date: 22 Apr 11 - 09:48 PM

I've been searching everywhere for the name of a song that haunts me. It starts like this:
    Don't the trees look great tonight, like black lace on a fading sky
    And the sun's gone westward on her run
    Leaving me behind with deeds undone
    Old tracks covered by new snow, pull up my shallow roots and go.

A man sings it. Came out in the late 60's early 70's.Does anyone know this song and who sang it.

Thanks

Great song, and I've been able to figure out MOST of the lyrics, but have trouble on the "old grey wolf verse..."

I tried Guest, but I can't understand it either. Too much accompaniment drowns out the singers.


a lesson for us all.

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
