​Swing It Low

This song is by Morphine and appears on the album Like Swimming (1997).

I got buttons bursting in the air
I got apple orchards everywhere
I got grapes swinging from the vine
Swinging in a line, lined up in the sunshine

I'm on time, fresh, fast
A sweetheart, I'll watch your back
I'm all swing, a swing from the shoestrings
Right or wrong, to me it's the same thing

You, especially, you, especially, you, especially
You have my loyalties

You in wartime, love, peace
I need to walk you down the street
I'm right here, I'll watch your back
In case the wind blows off your hat

You - you're on time
Your eyes are like diamond mine
Deep and bright inside

I got buttons bursting in the air
I got apple orchards everywhere
I got grapes, swinging from the vine
Swinging in a line, lined up in the sunshine

I got buttons bursting in the air
Ideas run fingers through my hair
And my shoes are ready to move,
My shoes are ready to move...

Swing it low, swing it low, swing it low low low
Swing it low, swing it low, swing it low low low...
