janie’s sparrow

by leo crandall

Genre: Americana/Country


At least you got hold it,
Dying in your hand.
It trembled on your finger.
Baby understand:
I hate that little sparrow.
Its sweet and fearful song
made my baby cry.

It flew out of the blackness
And into it again
We don’t know where it’s going,
Not sure where it’s been
In the revels in our taverns
Where the fallen find some light.
There is providence at hand

Wait a minute Janie
Don’t let go of me
It’s just a fallen sparrow
Baby hear my plea
Just where are you going
Baby can’t you see?
Don’t let go of me.
