Bare Trees

Album: Bare Trees (1972)
  • Bare trees, gray light
    Oh yeah it was a cold night
    Bare trees, gray light

    I was alone in the cold of a winters day
    You were alone and so snug in your bed
    I was alone in the cold of a winters day
    You were alone and so snug in your bed

    Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
    Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
    Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
    Bah do dah, do dah da do da do

    Bare trees, gray light
    Oh yeah it was a cold night
    Bare trees, gray light

    I was alone in the cold of a winters day
    You were alone and so snug in your bed
    I was alone in the cold of a winters day
    You were alone and so snug in your bed

    Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
    Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
    Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
    Bah do dah, do dah da do da do Writer/s: Daniel Kirwan
