Bare Trees

Fleetwood Mac

℗ 1972

Fleetwood Mac • 1972 • Bare Trees

Bare Trees is a studio album by British rock band Fleetwood Mac, released in 1972 (see 1972 in music). This is their last album to feature Danny Kirwan, who was fired during the tour to support this album. "Sentimental Lady" was later re-recorded by its composer Bob Welch (with Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, and Lindsey Buckingham backing him) for his solo album "French Kiss". The lyrics for Kirwan's composition "Dust" were taken from a poem by Rupert Brooke. "Thoughts on a Grey Day" is a poem read by an old lady named Mrs Scarrott, who lived near the band's communal home in southern England.

Child of Mine

(Kirwan)

Little child of mine
You'll be lovin' like your little Mother did
Heard it somewhere before
I won't leave you no not like my Father did

Heavy country blues keep a rockin'
K-k-k-keep that soulbeat a-sockin'
Heavy country blues keep a rockin'
K-k-k-keep that soulbeat a-sockin'

I miss you again
I let the sunlight through my eyes
I won't cry
I miss you again
I let the sunlight through my eyes
I won't cry
Little child of mine
You'll be lovin' like your little Mother did
Heard it somewhere before,
I won't leave you, no not like my Father did
Heavy country blues keep a rockin'
K-k-k-keep that soulbeat a-sockin'
Heavy country blues keep a rockin'
K-k-k-keep that soulbeat a-sockin'

I miss you again
I let the sunlight through my eyes
I won't cry

I miss you again
I let the sunlight through my eyes
I won't cry

I miss you again
I let the sunlight through my eyes
I won't cry

I miss you again
I let the sunlight through my eyes
I won't cry

The Ghost

(Welch)

Hold on
Until the ghost appears
That day is gonna last for years
Strange wind, is gonna blow through town
Lightnin' is gonna strike us down
Blue hills, are lookin' good to me
I go there, when I'm fast asleep
Ghost town, and the desert wind
Strange sounds, at the worlds end

And then the winds start to blow
And the fire comes scorching down (yeah)
And then the sky dissapears
In the cloud with an awfull sound (yeah)
And when you can't hold out
Then you run to the underground

Just a blue star
Hanging out in space
Earth town is a lovely place
Strange winds coming from the sky
Lovers gotta say goodbye

And then the winds start to blow
And the fire comes scorching down (yeah)
And then the sky dissapears
In the cloud with an awfull sound (yeah)
And when you can't hold out
Then you run to the underground

Look out before the ghost appears
Look out before the ghost appears
Strange winds

Homeward Bound

(C. McVie)

I want to sit at home in my rockin' chair
I don't want to travel the world
As far as I'm concerned I've had my share
But times more precious than gold
I don't wanna see another airplane seat
Or another hotel room
The home life to me seems really neat
I just wanna unpack for good

Buy me a ticket homeward bound (homeward bound)
Buy me a ticket homeward bound (oh homeward bound)

Well it all seems the same when you've done it before
There's no difference in the style
There's no end insight or my own front door
I'll be a stay at home for awhile
So I'll have another drink and a cigarette
Just to console myself some how
It's not too bad if you can forget
I've just got to find a way somehow

Buy me a ticket homeward bound (homeward bound)
Buy me a ticket homeward bound (oh homeward bound)

Buy me a ticket homeward bound (homeward bound)

Bare Trees

(Kirwan)

Bare trees, grey light
Oh yeah it was a cold night
Bare trees, grey light

I was alone in the cold of a winters day
You were alone and so snug in your bed
I was alone in the cold of a winters day
You were alone and so snug in your bed

Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
Bah do dah, do dah da do da do

Bare trees, grey light
Oh yeah it was a cold night
Bare trees, grey light

I was alone in the cold of a winters day
You were alone and so snug in your bed
I was alone in the cold of a winters day
You were alone and so snug in your bed

Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
Bah do dah, do dah da do da do
Bah do dah, do dah da do da do

Sentimental Lady

(Welch)

You are here and warm
But I could look away and you'd be gone
Cause we live in a time
When meaning falls in splinters from our lives
And that's why I've travelled far
Cause I come so together where you are

And all of the things that I said that I wanted
Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you
14 joys and a will to be merry
And all of the things that we say are very
Sentimental gentle wind
Blowing through my life again
Sentimental Lady
Gentle one

Now you are here today
But easily you might just go away
Cause we live in a time
When paintings have no color, words don't rhyme
And that's why I've travelled far
Cause I come so together where you are

And all of the things that I said that I wanted
Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you
14 joys and a will to be merry
And all of the things that we say are very
Sentimental gentle wind
Blowing through my life again
Sentimental Lady
Gentle one

You are here and warm
But I could look away and you'd be gone
Cause we live in a time
When meaning falls in splinters from our lives
And that's why I've travelled far
Cause I come so together where you are

Yes and all of the things that I said that I wanted
Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you
14 joys and a will to be merry
And all of the things that we say are very
Sentimental gentle wind
Blowing through my life again
Sentimental Lady
Gentle one

Sentimental gentle wind
Blowing through my life again
Sentimental Lady
Gentle one

Sentimental gentle wind
Blowing through my life again
Sentimental Lady
Gentle one

Well sentimental gentle wind
Blowing through my life again
Sentimental Lady
Gentle one

Spare Me a Little of Your Love

(C. McVie)

Why not lie here in my arms
And listen to the night
You must know you have certain charm
And I feel the time is right

So spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little of your love (of your love)
Spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little of your love (of your love)

Now I know that I feel much more
Oh in every single way
And it's not the same as before
It gets stronger everyday

So spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little of your love (of your love)
Spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little of your love (of your love)

Now I know how the sun must feel
Every time it shines
And now I know this is real
And I want you to be mine

So spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little of your love (of your love)
Spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little (just a little bit)
Spare me a little of your love (of your love)

Just a little bit

Dust

(Kirwan)

When the white flame in us is gone
And we that lost the world's delight
Stiffen in darkness.
Left alone
To crumble in our separate light
When your swift hair is quiet in death
And through the lips corruption thrust to still the labor of my breath

When we are dust, when we are dust
When we are dust, when we are dust

When your swift hair is quiet in death
And through the lips corruption thrust to still the labor of my breath

When we are dust, when we are dust
When we are dust, when we are dust

When the white flame in us is gone
And we that lost the world's delight
Stiffen in darkness
Left alone
To crumble in our separate light
When your swift hair is quiet in death
And through the lips corruption thrust to still the labor of my breath

When we are dust, when we are dust
When we are dust, when we are dust
