so listen:

i've counted the moose that might have crossed

the fields we passed

thought of the bear at the woodpile

at night one summer wandering headcocked

like a drunk looking for a friendly ear

tell you his story for a drink

tell you his story for a drink

i've watched crowshadowed houses cower at dawn

like the dalton boys waiting out a train

emmet & grat & the rest

even their father didn't remember their names

couldn't say how many there were

but in the wind i still hear them

horns singing 'so what' 'blowin the blues away'

and they follow me

dolphy & bird

miles mingus & trane

these names this music

this wind simply saying we must be heard
