The Mountain Goats Song for John Davis Lyrics

sponsored links

[Verse 1: John Darnielle]
The day we set sail from England
The wind behind us was fair
The day we set sail from England
There were smiling faces everywhere

[Chorus] [x2]
And the snow came down on New Hampshire today

[Verse 2]
The day we put the grain into the ground
There were smiling faces all around
And underneath the trees we planted when we landed

[Bridge]
When I was a child, I spoke with the language of a child
But when I became a man, I put away childish things

[Chorus] [x2]
