Bushes and Briars

I can t believe that it s so cold
And there ain t been no snow.
The sound of music it comes to me
From every place I go.
Sunday morning, there s no one in church
But the clergy s chosen man
And he is fine I won t worry about him
Got the book in his hand.

There s a bitter east wind and the fields are swaying
The crows are round their nests.
I wonder what he s in there saying
To all those souls at rest.
I see the path which led to the door
And the clergy s chosen man
Bushes and briars, you and I
Where do we stand?

I wonder if he knows I m here
Watching the briars grow.
And all these people beneath my shoes,
I wonder if they know.
There was a time when every last one
Knew a clergy s chosen man
Where are they now? Thistles and thorns
Among the sand.


I can t believe that it s so cold
And there ain t been no snow.
The sound of music it comes to me
From every place I go.
Sunday morning, there s no one in church
But the clergy s chosen man
Bushes and briars, thistles and thorns
Upon the land.
 
[Sandy Denny]
