lyrics

all my dreams are honey
heaven help me
should I lick my fingers to taste a little more
I set a course for something that looked golden
“Go do something beautiful”
you made me promise, and I swore

now all the roses bloom o’er Amerillo
I see you when I smell ‘em
I’d kiss every last thorn
“When you’re home, knock loud”
you’d said at leaving
“I don’t care if it’s late at night or in the early morn.”

and I wonder where this sadness goes
who it picked, and what it knows
if it dances by itself or if it sleeps alone
does it call out for Lenora?
and does it yearn for Clementine?
it’s raining but I hear the mountains
they are doing fine, yes they are doing fine

adios, sweet love of mine
I’ll see you come next fall
hold on fast to Clementine
don’t let her get too tall
I’ll wear my lonely ‘round my neck
I’ll sleep inside your heart
while shaking hands in moonlight
and making deals in the dark, in the dark

it only rains at night here, so they tell me
but when it does it washes every last one of us clean
at home I never understood the need for that
but now that I’m out here
I know exactly what they mean

some devils dance at midnight
others, they prefer the light of day
they’ll tell you what you wanna hear
things you’re afraid to say
I know ‘em by their shoes now
never look ‘em in the eye
you’d better have a quick hand
or else learn how to lie, how to lie

adios, sweet love of mine
I pray this finds you soon
hold on fast to Clementine
tell her daddy’s missin’ her bad, too
just a little longer, then I swear I’m coming home
I swear it on my life, my lord and everything I know
all I know

canyon winds they call me home
dustbowl mama take my bones
canyon winds they call me home
oh, dustbowl mama take my bones

adios, sweet love of mine
this wasn’t meant to be
hold on fast to Clementine
cover her eyes so she won’t see
they took my horse, poisoned my blood
and left me here to die
but I’ll see you when you sleep at night, my love
so don’t you cry, don’t you cry
