lyrics

CONSERVATION MEN
by Alexis M. Thompson

I walked along the planted trees of conservation men
And I prayed a ghost would love me and take me back with him
But no one ever came and I was lost in that deep woods
And the double crochet chains dragged me back to childhood.

OH, A TRUMPET CALLS “COME BACK HOME, CHILD
YOUR DINNER’S GETTING COLD”
I TRY TO WAKE AND TO ESCAPE
BUT THE ROPES ARE GETTING TIGHTER AS I GROW OLD

I gathered bottles left by conservation men
I polished them clean and laid them near the cattle fence
But none of them returned and the pile grew so tall
It pierced the canopy of pines and threatened me to fall

OH, A NORTH WIND CAME AND I SAW MY LIFE
AND I TURNED AROUND TO RUN
UNTIL I HEARD THE SHINY BOTTLES
SINGING “YOU’RE THE ONLY WOMAN THAT I LOVE”

I hear the voices of the conservation men
They’re telling me I’m beautiful and I belong to them
Oh, my mother I will mourn and my father I will miss
But all my life I’ve longed for a love like this.
