National Poetry Month - Dave Carter

I have pretty much forced the lot of you to read the lyrics to When I Go - but Dave, ah he has so many songs that do that to me.... and I could not pass up the chance to share my other great obsession. Click the title to go hear the music...



Gentle Soldier Of My Soul
© 1999 Dave Carter


hey-yah
my love has gone all upon the crimson trail
his drum at dawn beating brimstone through the veil
clear light through smoke and ash
and balmy seas, where breakers crash and roll
gentle soldier of my soul

hey-yah
he lays me down in his garden growin bed
he weaves a crown, twigs and feathers for my head
he sings the fields awake
and folds me in the love that makes me whole
gentle soldier of my soul

hey-yah
when i have passed through the forest of my trails
and stand at last where the shadows run for miles
we'll ride on ponies fine
with painted shields through fields of shining gold

gentle soldier of my soul
hey-yah
