A song from Beulah - A Folk Musical by The Flanagan Collective


Draw in the bass drums
And play down the horns
Just leave the air to woo

The breeze to tickle a fancy
And the wind to whip a smile
Just the world and you

Your tread off-sets quite sweetly
The on beat of a heart
With breathing a swung 3/4

No orchestra’s conductor
Or a metronome’s terse cluck
Could stick these feet to your floor

When we dance, my love, I’m floating
At least ten feet in the sky
You fly me, or I you
Each tight at the other’s side

When you pace, my dear, I’m stepping
My pulse pumped up in time
Our words slip effortless
In and out of the other’s stride


from Beulah, released September 7, 2012
Lyrics by Alexander Wright
Composed & Performed by Jim Harbourne & Ed Wren
