Jesse Sykes And The Sweet Hereafter

Doralee, there’s water in the basement
Saturday, you’ll be sleeping in the tree
Gone are the weeds that you tended to like children
Gone are the days and the distance between

Doralee, there’s gravel in your bath tub
The fish swam free, looking for their ocean went
You once loved a man whose heart was big and open
Said he could see the beauty in a song

Doralee, there are flies among the dead now
The fish swam free, looking for their ocean went
You once loved a man whose heart was big and open
Said he could see the beauty in a song
Said he could see the beauty in a song
