Music by Mark Nichols, based on Georgian traditional folk song. Lyrics B Brecht.


He who walks on shoes of gold
Tramples down the week and old
He who frowns all day long
Can't form the vowels of a sacred song

And a led heart made of stone
Makes for a heavy weight to own
And being greedy low, and bad
Is hard on even an evil lad

So let starvation be his fear
Not the starving who are hungry, dear
And let him fear the dark of night,
But never fear the daylight

Never fear the daylight!


from Caucasian Chalk Circle, released November 13, 2012
Performed by Mark Nichols and Neil Young (Just kidding)
