Iron & Wine Lyrics

10. Call Your Boys



Call your boys now that the table's set and shining 
No one's seen any of them in many days 
Call your boys they shut a buzzard on a Chrysler 
And you still taste all that you swallowed before grace 

And you'll forgive even the time they burned the hen house 
And ran from you ran to the hills with burning hands 

Setting sun framed in the doorway right behind you 
Several chores, surely some lessons left to tell 
Setting sun was in the hills and now before you 
Set your boys each with their shining silverware 

They'll bury you under the wood beside the carport 
They'll bury you some neon stop along the way 

Radio fuzz on the fence post by the pasture 
Long ago Liza and you would dance all day 
Now you lay buried, the stern and sacred father 
And sacred earth under the billboard in the rain 

For one last toast here's to the brave who went before us
