  1. To and Fro

From the album Spanish Moss Sirens

Lyrics

V1
To and fro his shoulders sway
To the inky waltz of St Joe Bay
Wrapped in the arms of a cypress tree
That won't release him to the sea
They all did call with all their might
Graven eyes in the warm torchlight
All suspecting, but never will know
That he waltzes to and fro

Ch1
Play for me darling, play for me dear
That dark dancin' tune I so long to hear
Make it in three time, draw it sweet and slow
Soothe me now my love, like you did long ago

V2
Listen child, on the midnight wind will blow
A black eerie tune that makes your blood run cold
A free woman tunes a fiddle and rosins a bow
Plays his waltz to him as he dances below
Eyes wide open, steeled and gray
Locked on a dock on the outskirts of the bay
He sees her stare down, foot tappin' as she plays
And he mouthes silty curses through the nights and the days

Ch2
Play for me darling, play for me dear
That dark dancin' tune I so long to hear
Make it in three time, draw it sweet and slow
Soothe me now my love, like you did long ago
