Lyrics


Cactus Tree


I wish I was / your ever lovin’ man
I wish I was / your ever lovin’ man
You know I wouldn’t have to worry
I could fill these boots with sand

I went to see my little bird sing
And the wind just shook the tree
I climbed to see my little bird sing
But the wind shook the tree
If you find her out on the western hills
Won’t you call her back to me

I spent the night in the tool yard
I tried to fashion you a ring
I spent the night in the tool yard
I tried to fashion you a ring
But I am far too late in asking
My love don’t mean a thing

I wish I was / a ruby throated sparrow
I wish I was / a ruby throated sparrow
I would sing so sweetly for you
Every morning at your window

There is a thorn / out on the cactus tree
They tell me of a thorn / out on the cactus tree
I’ve got a bad bad feelin’
That it’s waitin’ there for you and me

I wish I was / your ever lovin’ man
I wish I was / your ever lovin’ man
You know I wouldn’t have to worry
I could fill these boots with sand
