lyrics

Oh I’m in love with a wild man,
Oh I’m in love with a wild man,
He’s got birds the palm of his hand, oh
I’m in love with a wild man.

He smells of smoke and sap and pine,
Of sweaty days and the cold nighttime,
Of the woods and the air and the dirt and the dark,
Of work and silence and homemade wine.

He took my hand and he shook my life,
But he’d never take me as his wife.
I’d be drivin’ a wedge in his life, he said,
He was made for roamin’ and ramblin’.

In a dream one night he sang a song
Of livin’ with a woman he loved so long.
In the mornin’ light he was gone like the night;
His wordless note was the smell of smoke.

Well I put my love in a wild man,
And I lost my love in a wildfire.
Now his hands are crumbled, all black and grey,
Like the dust that he was born out of.

Oh I’m in love with a wild man,
Oh I’m in love with a wild man,
He’s got birds the palm of hand, oh
I’m in love with a wild man.
