The Crane Wife 3 Lyrics - The Decemberists

Review The Song (2)



The Crane Wife 3

And under the boughs unbowed
all clothed in the snowy shroud
She had no heart so hardened
All under the boughs unbowed

Each feather it fell from skin
'Til thread bare while she grew thin
How were my eyes so blinded?
Each feather it fell from skin

And I will hang my head, hang my head low
And I will hang my head, hang my head low

A grey sky, a bitter sting
A rain cloud, a crane on wing
All out beyond horizon
A grey sky, a bitter sting

And I will hang my head, hang my head low

And I will hang my head, hang my head low

wonderful song! | Reviewer: cabbage | 4/20/11

The first time I heard this song was when I was watching an episode from Wasatch Mountain Podcast(Snowboarding rocks!!!).They used this song as the background music.The simple tune attracted me.There are not too much words in it but a wonderful sensation.Then I put it in my iPod.



Amazing. | Reviewer: Stratton | 10/17/10

When my sister first played this song for me, I was a Linkin Park-head (still am, but since then have expanded tremendously) and just shrugged it off with a simple, "Meh." But one day this last summer, I was rummaging through my sister's old CD's and I burned a lot of them onto my iTunes, solely for the purpose of expanding my musical horizons from pretty much only Metal, Hard Rock, Punk, Alternative to Indie, Instrumental and so on. Out of all of the 1500+ songs I put on my iPod this summer, this one jumps out at me the most. The simple intro of the repeating chord progression catches your attention straight away. It's catchy from the get-go. Then you hear the vocals and think, "He might not be the best, but he compliments the sound of the band and creates a unique-ness to the name." Furthermore the lyrics being sung by the aforementioned vocalist are written in such a way that you find yourself trying to analyze them, to decipher them. An amazing song. Four and a half stars out of five. Great band!
