lyrics

WHEN I HEAR HAZEL SING
(capo 2- key of E) © Bob Wright

on a cool mountain night
a woman full grown
sat in the dark
on a low wall of stone
lost in her thoughts
or so it seemed
then I heard the truth
when I heard Hazel sing


(chorus)
How high the mountains green
how cool the mountain streams
how dark the hollers seemed to be
hearing her memories
deeper than mountain springs
I hear the truth
when I hear Hazel sing


she sang alone at first
living through every verse
giving herself to the song
singing of love and hurt
the best I’d ever heard
I heard the truth
when I heard Hazel sing

(chorus)
How high the mountains green
how cool the mountain streams
how dark the hollers seemed to be
hearing her memories
deeper than mountain springs
I hear the truth
when I hear Hazel sing


out of the darkness
some voices joined in
for a moment it seemed like
the mountains were singing


I stood there in a daze
lost in the songs she played
dawn broke
she stood to go
and as she walked away
I heard somebody say
I hear the truth
when I hear Hazel sing



(chorus)

How high the mountains green
how cool the mountain streams
how dark the hollers seemed to be
hearing her memories
deeper than mountain springs
I hear the truth
when I hear Hazel sing

They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
