Gregory Alan Isakov – The Stable Song lyrics

Remember when our songs were just like prayers
Like gospel hymns that you called in the air
Come down, come down, sweet reverence
Unto my simple house and ring
And ring

Ring like silver, ring like gold

Ring out those ghosts on the Ohio

Ring like clear day wedding bells

Were we the belly of the beast or the sword that fell

We’ll never tell

Come to me, clear and cold, on some sea

Watch the world spinning waves, mad machine

Now I’ve been crazy couldn’t you tell

I threw stones at the stars, but the whole sky fell

Now I’m covered up in straw, belly up on the table

Well I drank and sang, and passed in the stable

That tall grass grows high and brown

Well I dragged you straight in the muddy ground

And you sent me back to where I roam

Well I cursed and I cried, but now I know

Now I know

And I ran back to that hollow again

The moon was just a sliver back then

And I ached for my heart like some tin man

When it came, oh it beat, and it boiled, and it rang

Oh it’s ringing

Ring like crazy, ring like hell

Turn me back into that wild haired gale

Ring like silver, ring like gold

Turn these diamonds straight back into coal

Turn these diamonds straight back into coal
