WHITE DOVE
Patty Griffin


Laying low in the darkness

A long slow pain beats deep in her chest

And she wonders if he's safe tonight

Or if he's warm enough

And she tries to send upon the wind

A song of her love


Well a hundred miles away or more

A man learns what he's worth

A canon fires his body flies

Ashes to the earth

Far away something stirs a woman from her sleep

Flutters at her windowsill and she begins to weep


Oh white dove fly to her window in the morning

Tell my sweet love that I'm gone that I'm gone

White dove tell my love all there is to say

Oh white dove fly fly away


Well a hundred miles away or more

This wind becomes a storm

Another soldier closed his eyes

And slowly becomes warm

Turns his eyes to the sky from where he's laying low

There he sees the white dove lying in the snow


Oh white dove fly to her window in the morning

Tell my sweet love that I'm gone that I'm gone

White dove tell my love all there is to say

Oh white dove fly fly away
