lyrics

On the morning after the thunder fell,
Frances I can hear your name in the church bells,
I spend my days untangling knots of words speeding down wires,
But Frances in my heart, I'm just pullin handfuls of wild flowers.

Jack I'm standin' outside beside the clothesline,
I'm lookin' behind clouds and clovers for some kind of sign,
I know that you can't read all those letters that I sent,
but I still sent them anyway in case you did, in case you did.

Please honey, please, meet me in the middle of the day
Please honey, please, maybe by the month of May,
Maybe by the month of May.

Words and phrases sounded in my ears like mangled chords,
Dots and dashes shook and moved about like flashin swords,
Still I stayed up late each night to put my love down,
I placed my letters in a box and prayed, may peace be found.

Ol' Jonny Albright said he loved me late one night,
mama said I ought to marry him, said she knew he'd treat me right.
I searched through all the letters that I'd yet to send to you,
I cried out for you Jack, I cried for you, I cried for you.

Please honey, please, meet me in the middle of the day
Please honey, please, maybe by the month of May,
Maybe by the month of May.

Oh April lasted too long
The war dragged on
I learned
I slept alone
how to be alone
The war dragged on

Please honey, Please, meet me in the middle of the day,
Please honey, please, maybe by the month of May,
Maybe by the month of May.
