song notes

Storm Windows
ŠJohn Prine

I can hear the wheels 
of the automobiles
So far away - 
just moving along through the drifting snow
It's times like these 
when the temperatures freeze
I sit alone just looking at the world 
through a storm window
And down on the beach
the sandman sleeps
Time don't fly
it bounds and leaps
And a country band
that plays for keeps
They play it so slow

Don't let your baby down
Don't let your baby down
Don't let your baby down
Well, the spirits were high 
'til the well went dry
For so long the raven at my window 
was only a crow
I bought the rights 
to the inside fights
And watched a man
just beating his hand
against a storm window
While miles away 
o'er hills and streams
A candle burns
A witch's dreams
And silence is golden
till it screams
Right through your bones

Repeat Chorus:

Storm windows - Gee but I'm getting old
Storm window - keep away the cold
