Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Blackbird claw, raven wing
Under the red sunlight
Long clothesline, two shirtsleeves
Waving as we go by
Verse 2
Hundred years, hundred more
Someday we may see a
Woman king, wristwatch time
Slowing as she goes to sleep.
Verse 3
Black horse fly, lemonade
Jar on the red ant hill
Garden worm, cigarette
Ash on the window sill
Verse 4
Hundred years, hundred more
Someday we may see a
Woman king, sword I hand
Swing at some evil and bleed.
Verse 5
Black hoof mare, broken leg
Eye on the shot gun shell
Age old dog, hornet nest
Built in the big church bell
Verse 6
Hundred years, hundred more
Someday we may see a
Woman king, bloodshot eye
Thumb down and starting to weep.
