We picked our way
Down to the beach
Watching the waves dragging out of our reach
Tangling tails like a sodden sheet
Dangling entrails from a gut of the sea

Hoarding our meals
Alfalfa and rolls
Trying not to catch the cold eye of the gulls
I hope mother nature has not overheard
Though she doles out hurt like a puking bird

You stayed for the winter
No one told us about the laws of the land
I hold my own but you with your hunger
You and the other hand
Make yourself known
And when we were found
I know we both grieved
My heart made the sound of snow falling from eaves

You and me, Bess
We was as thick as thieves
So I swore nonetheless
Up and down, it was only me

So they took me away
And after some time
Studying my case must have made up their minds
By the time you realized I was dying
Must have been too late
I believe you were not lying a little

It is the day I
Wait with my ears cocked up like a gun
Like every day of course
Yanked by my wrists to the
Sugar front court yard
Now tell me what have I done?
Seems I have stolen a horse and I
Step to the gallows
Who do you think that you are?
Arching your hooves like a crane in the shallow
Gutters that line the boulevards
Powdered with folks who just stare as I hang
It's all the same
Kindness comes over me
What was your name?
It makes no difference I'm glad that you came
Forever I'll listen to your glad neighing

Man this music takes me to another place. I remember when I was 16 I was really stoned and walking in a field, away from lights, my smartphone hidden in my pocket, listening to this record and I felt like I was in another time period. Later I find out that this song is about a horse thief from the 1700s and I'm like, of course. Music pulled straight from the DNA master tape. What a talent Joanna Newsom is. Would love to speak with her one day.

This reminds me of my old border collie

shrew972

One of the greatest songs of this century so far

Lauren Dale

I used to sing this song to my son when he was a baby, trying to calm him down to sleep. He's almost 5 now and I just sang it to him again, for the first time in years. He looked so peaceful listening. I just love this song so much.

Alexandra Mann

stab me in the heart, why don't you, Joanna!

Derek Andres

Thanks for the upload! One of my favorites from the masterpiece Have One On Me.

Manu

Ive been listening to most of the songs from this album already, but this came as a pleasant surprise after I found the physical copy for me. I love it! It feels like a tale of historical adventure and all so personal at the same time. She draws from the complex emotions in historical events to paint a deeply personal picture

Lucas Hirata

Still as impressive as when I first heard it. Wow.
