Little Willow

Album: Flaming Pie (1997)
  • Bend, little willow
    Wind's gonna blow you
    Hard and cold tonight

    Life, as it happens
    Nobody warns you
    Willow, hold on tight

    Nothing's gonna shake your love
    Take your love away
    No one's out to break your heart
    It only seems that way, hey

    Sleep, little willow
    Peace gonna follow
    Time will heal your wounds

    Grow to the heavens
    Now and forever
    Always came too soon

    Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
    Little willow, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

    Nothing's gonna shake your love
    Take your love away
    No one's out to break your heart
    It only seems that way, hey

    Bend, little willow
    Wind's gonna blow you
    Hard and cold tonight

    Life, as it happens
    Nobody warns you
    Willow, hold on tight

    Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (willow, willow)
    Ah, little willow
    Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (willow, willow)

  • Olivia from Philadelphia, PaThis song is beautiful :)
  • Beth from Georgetown, InAwesome, sweet song that makes me choke up; waiting for Sir Paul's effort to set these types of emotions down to music are well worth the time it takes him to process the actual feelings. This is one of my top 5 favorite post-Beatles songs from incredible Paulie. By the way, Ken from Louisville, your comments are always so very helpful to me; I also happen to live in Kentuckiana, and am a Louisville native!
  • Ken from Louisville, KyPaul also wrote this song to comfort Ringo. Ringo and Maureen parted as freinds when they divorced and were on good terms. Ringo was very saddeded at her death.
  • Luna from London, Englanddid ringo ever comment on this song??
  • Jim from Cypress, CaIt takes Paul a long time to write about those types of feelings, and he usually does it in a very obscure way, like "Here Today." Run Devil Run was the first album created after Linda's passing, then Driving Rain...
