Jump Little Children – Dancing Virginia Lyrics

JUMP LITTLE CHILDREN
Dancing Virginia Lyrics

Your moon has come out tonight
Round as a crying eye
Round as a ringlet of smoke
From your smoke signal sky

I am the oak and the maple
I have covered my roots
You are the dancing Virginia
In black leather boots

Come as the silver morning
Come as a dragonfly
Come as my sleeping sister
Through the midnight sky

Cover me with your fire’s ashes
Cover me with your midnight veil
Cover me with your smoky river
Cover me, dancing Virginia

There’s a pain in my side
And it’s killing me
There’s a field of crows
Now a black sea

And I’ve called upon the hills
And I’ve called upon the soil
And they’ve screamed in my ear
Where’s your heart, boy?

Cover me with your fire’s ashes
Cover me with your midnight veil
Cover me with your smoky river
Cover me, dancing Virginia

Your moon has come out tonight
Round as a crying eye
Round as a ringlet of smoke
From your smoke signal sky

Come as the silver morning
Come as a dragonfly
Come as my sleeping sister
Through the midnight sky

Cover me with your fire’s ashes
Cover me with your midnight veil
Cover me with your smoky river
Cover me, dancing Virginia

Cover me with your revelation
Cover me with your sorrows tale
Cover me with your holy water
Cover me, dancing Virginia

The gray elephant folds of adventure
(Cover me with your fire’s ashes)
The blue oasis of meditation
(Cover me with your midnight veil)

The feathered touch of a sleepy afternoon
(Cover me with your revelation)
Beneath the tent of a palmetto haven
(Cover me with your sorrows tale)

And I’m rising upwards from my feet
(Cover me with your holy water)
As children run side by side with their elation
(Cover me, dancing Virginia)
