RICK FORD ≈ Lyrics

Batten down the hatch
Rick Ford

Dead leaves falling, cominí down like rain
I hear their rhythm, on my window pane
Batten down the hatch, turn the lamp down low
Long as youíre with me, I donít care if the cold wind blows

Used to hide my conscience, in a long necked bottle
Catch my teardrops, in a whisky glass
Batten down the hatch, turn the lamp down low
Long as youíre with me, I donít care if the cold wind blows

Never knew how deep, the diamond shines
So deeply buried, in a veil of lies
The earthís iron bound, Ďneath a steel grey sky
Storm clouds coming, like the Devilís bride

Nothiní ainít for nothiní, thatís what the wise men say
For every dream, thereís a price to pay
Batten down the hatch, turn the lamp down low
Long as youíre with me, I donít care if the cold wind blows

The wind of truth, blows down a hard road,
I swear itís lonesome as an unmarked grave
Batten down the hatch, turn the lamp down low
Long as youíre with me, I donít care if the cold wind blows
