Year Of The Crow (Kleinhans/Dunkle)

Story Behind The Song

This is a collaboration with musical great Kurt Kleinhans - the song is a spinoff of Kurt's song "Zygote". The song is based on a true story - One day I was reading the Bible and after reading about Elijah being fed by ravens I really started doubting the story. A few days later after feeding my old left over bread to the birds as I normally do - I heard a knocking at my front storm door. When I open the front door a crow was standing there looking at me, as if he was asking for more bread. To this day I still look for that crow. It used to knock on my door regularly. Hopefully I'll never doubt the power of God again!

Lyrics

Who's that knocking on my front door
Who's that knocking
I hope it's not that crow
I hope it's not that crow
I hope it's not that crow

Elijah was fed by ravens
many years ago, guess it's time to return the favor
Oh, don't you - don't you know

It's the Year Of The Crow
It's the Year Of the Crow
It's the Year Of the Crow

Who's that knocking on my front door
Who's that knocking is it the daily post
Who's that knocking on my front door
It's time to feed the crows
They never leave me alone
This bread won't do it alone
Not much left in this loaf

It's the Year Of The Crow
It's the Year Of the Crow
