Man on the Wing

by Dave Williams

Dave Williams is an American singer-songwriter from Salem, Oregon.




This is the story of the Man on the Wing
A sorrowful tale that began in the spring
A time of new love and new life begun
When wolves leave the bones of lambs in the sun

This is the story of the Man on the Wing
A woeful song for a night gathering 
A time of fables and a time to die
When bears toss the heads of men to the sky

The Man on the Wing he lives in a trance 
His life is nothing but happenstance
He dances to ancient drums of the past 
Searching for a love that won't last
The amazing Man on the Wing

This is the story of the Man on the Wing
A dreadful yarn with laughter to ring
A time of question and a time of disdain
When birds peck the eyes of dead in the rain

The Man on the Wing he lives in a cloud	  
The Man on the Wing his love is a shroud    
Young woman go quickly run while you can
Surely you will find a real man

The Man on the Wing he lives in a trance 
His life is nothing but happenstance
He dances to ancient drums of the past 
Searching for a love that won't last
The amazing Man on the Wing

This is the story of the Man on the Wing
A mournful howl at the moon shining   
A time of regret and a time of blood
When wolves dig up sinners graves in the mud

The Man on the Wing he lives in a trance 
His life is nothing but happenstance
He dances to ancient drums of the past 
Searching for a love that won't last
The amazing Man on the Wing
The amazing Man on the Wing
