Lyrics

Let’s go down to Hunters Meadow where the grass is growing tall
And you dream away your daydreams ’til you got no dreams at all
And you tangle in the thorns. And you bramble through the briar
And you’re buried where you’re born, ’cause you’re married to the fire

Let’s go down
Let’s go down
Let’s go down

Let’s go down to Hunters Meadow where the stag stands near the stream
And you see that rainbow shimmer between the glimmer and the gleam
And you hear that red fox running by the fenceline through the fog
You can hear the horses coming. You can hear the dogs.

Let’s go down
Let’s go down
Let’s go down

Let’s go down to Hunters Meadow where the maid stands with her mare
And all the daylight’s rivaled by their matching golden hair
And they eat the silver apples where the moon has come undone
And when the day’s begun they ride as one into the rising sun

Let’s go down
Let’s go down
Let’s go down
