lyrics

I recall an open space,
Blue chicory and Queen Anne's lace
The highway lined and the hillside traced
With blue chicory and Queen Anne's Lace

You can't go far off from me
Or climb too high in the tree
I'll be there

With a beaded brow and a smilin' face
Blue chicory and Queen Anne's Lace
Summer's heat like a close embrace
Blue chicory and Queen Anne's Lace

I know you understand,
But as long as I can
I'll stay here

With a heavy heart and a steady pace
Blue chicory and Queen Anne's Lace
A stumbling start for a losing race
Blue chicory and Queen Anne's Lace

I fell behind though I tried
But the pain in my side
Held me away
I know that time is gonna bring me round to you
Closer every day

Leave the door ajar, maybe just in case
Blue chicory and Queen Anne's Lace
All this still might be replaced
With blue chicory and Queen Anne's Lace
