ABOUT THIS SONG
//Jim Younger's father was killed by Northern guerrilla (bushwackers?) when Jim was about fourteen. I tried to imagine how he could feel after that loss, and you can hear his mother's voice in the lyrics...
It is believed that everybody knew who the murderers were, and that Henry Younger wasn't involved in any Confederate Guerrilla.
But who knows where the truth lies?//

lyrics

He's lying down on the riverside
The summer weather's so fine he could melt into it
He looks at the trees above his head
The leaves are quivering in the warm wind

He wishes he could touch the clouds
Climb on the smooth cotton balls
It would be great to touch the clouds
Flying away in the sky
Slowly pushed by the wind

"Your father's dead, let the murderer live
With his sin for the rest of his days"
His mother softly yet sadly whispered
He's 14, he's not sure he understands

He wishes he could touch the clouds
Climb on the smooth cotton balls
It would be great to touch the clouds
Flying away in the sky
Slowly pushed by the wind

"Boys don't seek revenge on him,
He'll forever look over his shoulder in fear
Wishing he'll never come across One of you, boys, never, ever"

He wishes he could touch the clouds
Climb on the smooth cotton balls
It would be great to touch the clouds
Flying away in the sky
Slowly pushed by the wind
