Scarecrow

This song is by Eddi Reader and appears on the album Eddi Reader (1994).

Oh scarecrow wherever you go
You're only bringing sorrow
Oh scarecrow wherever you go
You're only bringing sorrow

Sorrow for the ones you left behind {ah-ah}
Sorrow for the ones who go
Sorrow for the ones who change their mind
'Cause they'll never know
No, they'll never know
You start out wanting life
But you get hurried
You start out wanting love
But you get worried

Oh scarecrow wherever you go
You're only bringing sorrow
Oh scarecrow wherever you go
You're only bringing sorrow

Sorrow for the ones who steal the sun {ah-ah}
Sorrow for the ones who go
Sorrow for the flowers in the guns
'Cause they'll never know
No, they'll never know

Mmm, at waters edge a drunken horse
How sad and strange to watch him waiting

We're watching from a high wire
Birds watching from a high wire
We're watching you {watching you}
We're watching you

You start out wanting life
But you get hurried
You start out wanting love
But you get worried

Oh scarecrow wherever you go
You're only bringing sorrow

Oh, yeah, yeah, scarecrow
{Bah, bup-ba-ba-bah, bup-ba-ba-bah, etc.}
Oh-yeah-oh...
Oh scarecrow wherever you go
You're only bringing sorrow
{Bah, bup-ba-ba-bah, bup-ba-ba-bah, etc.}

Written by:

Eddi Reader, Boo Hewerdine and Gary Clark.
