Patchwork Quilt

by Warren Haynes

I never knew you, but then who really did?
If you were at all like me,
You managed to keep yourself hid
A patchwork quilt of a life
Memories embroidered on your soul
So please forgive me, for putting you in my song

But the spirit, she moves me,
In fact she pushes me along
It's a patchwork quilt of a life
Can't stop the river, just let it roll

We were at Jones Beach when we got the word
Saddest sound that I've ever heard
The bluest note that nobody could play
Ravens sang with us that night on the stage
Tears of sadness, tears of rage
But nobody spoke, we all felt old.... and in the way

So walk beside me - or above me, I don't know
These days, it sure seems, I'm lost wherever I go
"God, how could you?" I heard somebody say
"What do we do with our lives now, anyway,
Now that our North Star can no longer be found?"
There's a banjo moon in a tie-dyed sky
Hippies dance and babies cry
Church bells ring as a silver-haired angel looks down

And the blood of his music
Runs through the veins of our guitars
Bright lights.... dark star...

I never knew you, but then, who really did?
If you were at all like me,
You managed to keep yourself hid
