He's A Keeper Of The Fire

This song is by Buffy Sainte-Marie and appears on the album Illuminations (1969) and on the compilation album The Best Of Buffy Sainte-Marie (1970).

He's as heavy as a lead weight, baby
He's as skinny as a wire
He's a prophet of a new day, baby
He's a keeper of the fire

He's got a funny kinda voodoo, baby
You oughta see him at the zoo
He's got a heavy kinda hoodoo, baby
And he can lay it on you

He can say it like an angel, baby
He can say it like a blowhorn
He can see a-seven devils, baby
And never even give a whole turn

Been haunted like a razor, baby
He's been tested in the blood
He's a walker on the hot coals, baby
And he's a-heavenly bound

I saw him walkin' in the valley, baby
I could see him through the trees
I saw him talkin' to the moon there, baby
He was walkin' on his knees

He can play it like a rainbow, baby
He can play it like a clown
He can play it like a river, baby
And he can follow you down

He's as heavy as a lead weight, baby
He's as skinny as a wire
He's a prophet of a new day, baby
He's a keeper of the fire
