lyrics

SHADE TREE PLACE (Davis/Coleman)

I need a place, a shade tree place
I need a place a new cool waterhole
I need a place, a shade tree place
A sanctuary for my very soul
I need a place where I can go

I need a place, a shade tree place
I need a place where the swallows swoop low
I need a place, a shade tree place
Today it seems such a long way,
Way down the road
I need a place where I can go

Something there, inside of me,
Is trying to wake me up
Something there, is shaking my shoulders to see
The rocks and the trees and the centipede

Land o land, you keep calling to me,
Come and sit with me a while
Land o land, you keep calling to me,
To rest in the grace with the lorikeet

I need a place, a shade tree place
I need a place a new cool waterhole
I need a place, a shade tree place
I need a place where the swallows swoop low
I need a place where I can go
I need a place where I can go
I need a place where I can go

from “A Sanctuary of Soul” – Noel Davis
The Heart Waking 2007 p17
