lyrics

The Birds purpose/zollo 69

Still the long December night
Still this farm in dappled light
Still the scarecrows stuffed with straw
Still the well from which we draw

Still the sound of horses near
Still the songs of yesteryear
Still new apples on the branch
Still the silent avalanche

CHORUS:
Still the birds, Fly on high
Still they fly, sky blue sky
Soar above, the world of men
Still the birds begin again

Still the leaves turn red and gold
Still the young becomes the old
Still the promise of the Spring
Still love shines in everything

Still old soldiers pass away
Still new souls born every day
Still the songs of love are sung
Still the heart is always young

CHORUS:
Still the birds, Fly on high
Still they fly, sky blue sky
Soar above, the world of men
Still the birds begin again

Still the tale of time is told
Until we step beyond the fold
Far beyond this world of men
Ready to begin again

Still the birds...

Darryl went to Las Vegas when he was 19 and became a professional card player, which he still calls the 'only real job I've ever had'.

The sometimes social activist always has a compelling story to tell, in words and in song.
