about

Banjo-centric folk-rock tune inspired by, well, you know, a member of the opposite sex. Like have been inspirin’ musicians since music was 2 rocks banged together.

“Oh no, not again” I hear you groan.

Yes, again.

lyrics

CHORUS:
Listen to the lady whose name is Morning Dew
She can tell you stories about people, and places
And things that you never knew
She feels a lot like a gunshot
A lot like freezin'-hot
She feels a lot like you
That's why you love to listen to the lady named
Morning Dew

Out of her past she wandered
On a road that was just her own
Til one day the path that she followed
Intersected the one you were on
You couldn't tell exactly where she came from
But it didn't seem to matter anyway
You might not have understood every word that you heard
But it seemed like she had something to say
(And so you'd...)

[Chorus]

She has lived amid death and destruction
And somehow emerged mostly whole
She felt the icy grip a demon drug
As it ravaged her body and soul
Somehow she found a way to defeat it
Then for a while she fled far away
Deep in her eyes you can see traces of her pain
And you got no idea what to say
(So you just...)

[Chorus]

Two roads run together for a while or a night
Nobody knows just for how long
Maybe forever, maybe just for today
Maybe you'll cry when she's gone
But even if you wake and tomorrow she's flown
No way you gonna say you got burned
And in the midst of your sorrow
You will know that you have listened and learned
(Just from...)

[Chorus]
