Let the rivers rock you like a cradle Climb to the treetops, little child, if you're able Always let your hands tie a knot across the table Come and touch the things you cannot feel Fold your fingertips, girl, and find where I can't hold you Let the sun ray fall and let the dewey ground unfold you I know someday you'll sing to me the words I've just told you If all the things you feel ain't what they seem to be Don't you mind me girl, 'cause I ain't really nothin' but a dream I hold some grapes up to the sun Flavor breaks and bursts and rolls upon my tongue Eager tongues, we'll always taste our strife Fill up our lungs with seeds of life You come and taste and smell the waters of our times Close your lips, child, so softly I might kiss you Let your flower perfume out and let the winds come and caress you As I walk this garden I am hoping I don't miss you The things you taste and smell ain't what they seem Don't you mind me girl, I guess I'm nothin' but a walking dream The sun and moon both are right We'll see them soon through all our days and night But the colors I see in your eyes are fiery bright I swear they blind the heavens with all their light Come and see what your eyes cannot see Close your eyes, child and look while I show you Let your mind go reeling out and let the breezes just blow you Someday we'll meet again and suddenly I'll know you All the things that you see ain't what they seem to be Now don't mind me I ain't nothin' but a dream A mockingbird sings each different song Each song has wings and won't stay long Those who hear him think he's doing wrong While the church bell and school bell toll their one note song Come hear where your ears cannot hear Close your ears child and listen while I tell you Follow the darkest night, the sounds they may impel you Even the song I'm singing may disturb or serve to quell you All the sounds you hear aren't what they seem to be Don't you mind me girl, oh, I ain't nothing but a dream If you can follow, girl, follow, girl If you can follow, girl, follow
