The Rock and the Moss

lyrics

The rock and the moss
The dove in the pine
You give what’s yours
And I’ll give you mine

Sailed the Great Lakes
Through darkness and storm
Through wind and rain
To the Halifax port
And on his day off
Just before dusk
He’d bring his guitar
And meet up with his love

CHORUS

She worked as a nurse
For a many years
Enough love and guts
To ease the blood and tears
She’d meet with her love
Down Golf Course Road
He’d play the guitar
And her the piano

CHORUS

It’s so good to notice
When you roll out of bed
How the quiet of the country
Clears the noise in your head
They sit here together
The rock and the moss
Sometimes a love is so big
Our little hearts get crossed

CHORUS
