INTRO: 4 MEASURES

V1 & V2: 8 MEASURES
Well my father was a farmer, down in old Dixie land
He didn’t grow carrots or corn
He grew cauliflower, ‘cause that’s what his daddy did
From the day my grandfather was born

Well the days of my youth, were spent in the field
And workin’ the farmers’ market fair
And I didn’t complain, or know of anything else
‘Til the day that I saw her there

CHORUS: 4 MEASURES
My heart aches for you my darlin’
My heart aches for you my dear
And I wish your sweet lips could whisper again
In my old cauliflower ear

V3 & V4: 8 MEASURES
From the moment our eyes locked, together that day
I knew that we were a match
And my heart filled with joy, on the world’s finest day
When we were married, in the cauliflower patch

Well we raised a fine family, and I guess I didn’t see
That cauliflower was not my wife’s taste
And the strain of that plant, day in and day out
Was laying our marriage to waste

CHORUS: 4 MEASURES
My heart aches for you my darlin’
My heart aches for you my dear
And I wish your sweet lips could whisper again
In my old cauliflower ear

INSTRUMENTAL: 4 MEASURES

V5: 4 MEASURES
Well my kids learned my trade, and became cauliflower farmers
And my darlin’ couldn’t take any more
She threw down her apron, and she didn’t look back
When she turned, and walked out the door

INSTRUMENTAL: 4 MEASURES

V6: 4 MEASURES
I supposed I could’ve stopped it, if I had decided
To take up some other line of work
But I am what I am, and my family’s proud heritage
I couldn’t bring my poor self to shirk

CHORUS: 4 MEASURES (LAST ONE DRAGS)
My heart aches for you my darlin’
My heart aches for you my dear
And I wish your sweet lips could whisper again
In my old cauliflower ear

OUTRO: 4 MEASURES (LAST ONE DRAGS)

Piney Branch and Dale http://foxxfalcon.com/?p=40 http://foxxfalcon.com/?p=40#comments Fri, 22 May 2009 16:03:55 +0000 Foxx Falcon http://foxxfalcon.com/?p=40 every journey starts, with a familiar path
you start out the same way, but it never lasts
you always cover new ground
you wind up in a new town
there is no need to repeat
so just strap in your seat
and go go go go go
Ah but first
you traverse
the burbs

Yes first
you traverse
the burbs

Sometimes it’s the country, with its open space
So primitive and lovely, in all its natural grace
the air is pure and free
you

Sometimes it’s the city, with it’s teaming life

Perhaps you’ll head east, with an expanding mind

Great Falls to Harpers Ferry http://foxxfalcon.com/?p=1 http://foxxfalcon.com/?p=1#comments Thu, 21 May 2009 14:16:47 +0000 Foxx Falcon http:/?p=1 After two failed attempts, including one bomber jacket and one undeniable message from heaven (lighting bolts and all), I have finally completed the bike ride from Great Falls to Harpers Ferry along the C&O Canal towpath.

Highlights of the trip
goals
rhythms of peddling
the docent, the cyclist, the through hiker, the b&b english teacher
the geese
the water
prayer along the path — last time and this time
