The Decemberists June Hymn Lyrics

Last updated: 02/23/2011 10:00:00 AM

Hear the hymn to welcome in the day
Heralding a summer's early sway
And all the bulbs all coming in, to begin
Thrushs' bleeding battle with the wrens
Disrupts my reverie again

Pegging clothing on the line
Training jasmine how to vine
Up the arbor to your door, and more
Standing on the landing with the war
You shouldered all the night before

And once upon it
The yellow bonnets
Garland all the lawn
And you were waking
And day was breaking
A panoply of song
And summer comes to Springville Hills

A barany of ivy in the trees
Expanding out it's empire by degrees
And all the branches burst a' bloom
Into bloom
Heaven sent this cardinal, maroon
To decorate our living room

And once upon it
The yellow bonnets
Garland all the lawn
And you were waking
And day was breaking
A panoply of song
And summer comes to Springville Hills

And years from now
When this old light isn't ambling anymore
Will I bring myself to ride (?)
I give my best to Springville Hills

And once upon it
The yellow bonnets
Garland all the lawn
And you were waking
And day was breaking
A panoply of song
And summer comes to Springville Hills
And summer comes to Springville Hills
