Lyrics

TO & FRO

To and fro his shoulders sway
To the inky waltz of St Joe Bay
Wrapped in the arms of a cypress tree
That won't release him to the sea
They all did call with all their might
Graven eyes in warm torchlight
All suspecting, but never will know
Where he waltzes to and fro

Chorus
Play for me darling, play for me dear
That dark dancin' tune I so long to hear
Make it in three time, draw it sweet and slow
Soothe me now my love, like you did long ago

Listen child, on the midnight wind will blow
A black eerie tune that makes blood run cold
A woman tunes a fiddle and rosins up her bow
And plays his waltz to him as he dances below

Ch2
Play for me darling, play for me dear
That dark da-ncin' tune I so long to hear
Make it in three time, draw it sweet and slow
Soothe me now my love, like you did long ago

Eyes wide open, steeled and gray
Locked on a dock on the outskirts of the bay
He sees her stare down, foot tappin' on that case
And mouths silty curses through the nights and the days
