lyrics

Crooked Wall:

There’s a crooked wall, there’s a crooked wall, there’s a broken board
The pictures fall down in the hall, and there’s a sagging frame around the door

And at night I hear the timbers creak, I wonder if they’ll shatter
We could take the kids downstairs, we could climb upon that ladder
‘Till the morning comes

We bought the place in fifty-nine, grew older raised our kids
We found a place for romance and we found a place for kin

My heart was like a broken stone, the first time that I saw you
This house was full of shaking bones and the windows were alight with a fire

When I’ve woken in the night and of despair I’m full
When I’ve tried to blow my house down
When I’ve run from wolves
When I lay my head back and close my eyes again
Won’t you tell me that these frames will hold
And we can rest herein

‘Till the morning comes
‘Till the morning comes
‘Till the morning comes
