6.  Tell Me Of The Sky - Notes and Lyrics

Tell Me Of The Sky has actually brought a few tears to the eye, as the story unfolds of a young girl asking her father to remember what the sky and the water and the earth were like back when he was young – before disaster forced people to live in caves to protect them from the harsh elements on the surface.  Could it happen to us?

 

Lyrics

She sat by by her father's knees

And she looked him in the eye.

She said to him, “Daddy, please

Would you tell me of the sky?”

“My little one,” he said, “it was so long ago.

The earth was green and the waters clear,

And the sky was blue... and the sky was blue

Oh, the sky was blue! What happened, I don't know!”

 

 

She listened to his tale

For she was his only daughter

And she said to him, “Daddy, please

Would you tell me of the water?”

“My little one,” he said, “it was so long ago.

The earth was green and the waters clear,

And the sky was blue... and the sky was blue

Oh, the sky was blue! What happened, I don't know!”

 

 

She touched her father's hands

And she asked him of the earth

For the stony cave below was the place that knew her birth.

“My little one,” he said, “it was so very long ago.

The earth was green and the waters clear,

And the sky was blue... and the sky was blue

Oh, the sky was blue! What happened, I don't know!”

 

 

She sat by by her father's knees

And she looked him in the eye.

She said to him, “Daddy, please

Would you tell me of the sky?”
