Resurrection Fern Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
In our days we will live
Like our ghosts will live
Pitching glass at the cornfield crows
And folding clothes
Verse 2
Like stubborn boys across the room
We'll keep everything
Grandma's gun, and the black bear claw
That took her dog
Verse 3
When sister Laurie says "Amen"
We won't hear anything
The ten-car train will take that word
That fledgling bird
Verse 4
And the falling house across the way
It'll keep everything
The baby's breath, our bravery wasted
And our shame
Verse 5
And we'll undress beside the ashes of the fire
Both our tender bellies bound in baling wire
All the more a pair of underwater pearls
Than the oak tree and its Resurrection Fern
Verse 6
In our days we will say
What our ghosts will say
We gave the world what it saw fit
But what'd we get?
Verse 7
Like stubborn boys with big green eyes
We'll see everything
In the timid shade of the autumn leaves
And the buzzard's wing
Verse 8
And we'll undress beside the ashes of the fire
Our tender bellies all wound around in baling wire
All the more a pair of underwater pearls
Than the oak tree and his Resurrection Fern
