lyrics

Migrant

Three of us died on the train today
One fell chasing a truck
Some curse their gods
Others just curse their luck
We ask around for David
People say that he’s gone
Gone to meet his maker
Or travelling clean away
Far and away over and away

Freedom’s a queen finest I’ve seen
Freedom’s a lover careless and free
Freedom appears calling me home
Those longest last few miles
This day next day someday soon
Lonely scared far from home

I ran down the fenceline
It’s all that we ever do
Searching out the weakness
Trying to find the way through
A lark rose up beside me
Climbing into the air
Rose up singing beside me
Climbing into the air
Higher and away over and away

Freedom’s a queen finest I’ve seen
Freedom’s a lover careless and free
Freedom appears calling me home
Those longest last few miles
This day next day someday soon
But who will see that my grave is kept clean
But who will see that my grave is kept clean
