Lion In The Winter
Hoyt Axton

Like a lion in the winter i can hear the summer call
Like a ship out on the ocean made of stone
And sometimes when i get lonely i can swear i hear you call
Oh the nights are cold when you don't keep me warm

And when i first saw you i first loved you
With a song that i sang to the fire in your eyes
But somebody told you that it wouldn't be easy
And you carried that lie for the devil to sing

Some sail rivers deep and muddy some sail rivers clear and cold
But the river that i'm sailin' goes to sea
And sometimes i do grow weary sometimes i feel old
And sometimes i wonder if you think of me

And when i first saw you i first loved you...
Like a lion in the winter i can hear the summer call...
And when i first saw you i first loved you...
