babe the blue ox drank the river, he swallowed the greatest lake
and the land he cut his teeth in, is the land my family stays

my kin have passed into their next lives, thats what the father says
but late at night I murmur prayers, to a man I've never met

you and I have just been wandering
I guess its time we both grew up
I always wished we could stay brothers in the woods

oh my lonely dove

the eggs have shattered on the highway, the hospital is freezing
the organ moans from the cathedral, as your soul is leaving

I've been waiting years for morning
but I never do wake up
the night may fall in love, but it's not enough

for you lonely dove.
