Four Jacks - lyrics

playlist Playlist
When mother is aslumbering
Beneath her shawl of white
And you wrap your cloak against the wind
But still you feel its bite
With many mouths at home to feed
This deer must not be lost
When you thank the prey let the arrow fly
You become Jack Frost
When the maiden slips her samite cloak
Revealing her lilac breasts
And the rising sun climbing high in the sky calls
Acorns to their quest
When hoof trod earth surrenders to seed
And the meadowsweet is queen
When you step the jig of furrow and plow
You celebrate Jack Green
Jack, Jack, dancing round the moonlight
Changing shadows with every stride
Jack, Jack, summer green and Yule white
Hunter, Dancer, Dying One, Guide
When summer's oak green wanes scarlet and brown
And a carpet of leaves is laid
Mother's kiss has charged the land
And staghorns drape the glade
The fields are tall with sacrifice
For springtime's still unborn
Raise the crescent high, cut down the grain
And celebrate Jack Corn
Jack, Jack, dancing round the moonlight
Changing shadows with every stride
Jack, Jack, summer green and Yule white
Hunter, Dancer, Dying One, Guide
When the riddled fields are gathered and gleaned
From the shadows of a killing freeze
And twilights fall to copper moons
That dance with barren trees
When comes the final harvest home
Beneath that silver light
When weary feet tread that dusky road
Jack Lantern walks the night
Jack, Jack, dancing round the moonlight
Changing shadows with every stride
Jack, Jack, summer green and Yule white
Hunter, Dancer, Dying One, Guide
Now I'm no tawny hunter,
No tiller of barley seed
I've never threshed a stalk of wheat
But I've still a family to feed
When I feel whelmed over with provider on my back
I tilt my head back, howl his howl
Smile his secret grin
And call on Jack
Callin' on Jack
I'm callin' on Jack
