Lyrics

JACK DAW - COPYRIGHT KRISTOPH KLOVER

Jack Daw came from the mountain
And he brought his jug of wine
He sat and talked among us
We lost track of the time
That bottle held the future
And the spirits of the past
We drank it to the dregs
But we could not drink the last

CHORUS:
Jack Daw hang your head and go home
Gonna wake up the morning,
Another dawn (he'll be gone)

Jack Daw went to a river
Where he threw his body in
And his pale features floated up
Like a heart lifted of sin
We drew him from the water
Laid his burden in the ground
Jack Daw is here each time
We need to turn the world around

CHORUS

Jack Daw went to the maypole
With ribbons for the Spring
And maidens wrapped around him
As befits the Summer's king
He leapt into their bonfire
And his body filled with light
And he lit up in his glory
And he blessed us in the night.

CHORUS

Jack Daw he was a king
When the ancients walked the land
They say he's just a myth
But he was more than a man
At the darkest hour of winter
With the world about to end
He sacrificed himself so the sun could rise again

CHORUS

Now the ones they name Jack Daw
Huddle in the night
Loving arms around him
He wonders what that's like
If you find that you're set free
From the troubles in your heart
You can bet Jack Daw is cryin'
Dyin' out there in the dark

CHORUS
