AFTER THE GOLD RUSH
Emmylou Harris


Well I dreamed I saw the knights in armor coming saying something about a queen
There were peasants singing and drummers drumming and the archer split the tree
There was a fanfare blowing to the sun that was floating on the breeze
Look at mother nature on the run in the twentieth century
Look at mother nature on the run in the twentieth century

I was lying in a burned out basement with a full moon in my eyes
I was hoping for a replacement when the sun burst through the skies
There was a band playing in my head and I felt like I could cry
Thinking about what a friend had said I was hoping it was a lie
Thinking about what a friend had said I was hoping it was a lie
[ piano ]
Well I dreamed a saw the silver spaceships flying in the yellow have of the sun
The were children crying and colors flying all around the chosen ones
All in a dream all in a dream the loading had begun
Flying mother nature's silver seed to a new home in the sun
Flying mother nature's silver seed to a new home
