about

Live only played on the guitar. Using the banjo alone for the first half of the song on this version was a bit radical. Hope, the thing with feathers.

lyrics

Half in hope

Hung around the linden tree half in hope you’d come
Cut a switch at the old wharf wall half in hope you’d come
Peddled time where the hogweed bloomed half in hope you’d come

Looked for you when the jackdaw flew she said be on your way
Penned a tune as the west wind blew it said be on your way
Sat outside til twilight knew that I was on my way

It ain’t miles and miles or the roses on the hill
Not the shadows lengthening as shadows always will

Kicked my heels when the blood moon grew half in hope you’d come
Never left when dust was due half in hope you’d come
Stuck around like people do half in hope you’d come
