Verdant Green

Tags: love

Feeling spirits of Shiloh, as I walk the fields of battle
Now verdant green with shadows and a stone
Beneath you lay as the stone grows cold
On the banks of a river as kids, we played

Now God has carried you away but your soul remains
Yet the peace in the valley comes with autumn's frost
Of the love of my life, that I have lost
And the tears that give me pain

As I hear you, six feet below calling my name
So mellow of your alto, with a smile on your lips  
As the chariot carries you home
To better a place for your soul to roam

As the antebellum still lingers of the cotton  
And cotillions where we made love  
But Old Dixie will never be the same
Until God shares his grace, for one and all

Feeling spirits of Shiloh, as I walk the fields of battle
Where ghost have bled no more to tread  
As we kiss away all our fears
Now verdant green with shadows and a stone
