-al... Ah... The second half of the song has the same structure. Lyrics: Verse 1 Sold my cold knot A heavy stone Sold my red horse for a venture home To vanish on the bow Settling slow Chorus 1 Fit it all, fit it in the doldrums Or so the story goes Color the era Film it its historical Verse 2 My mile could not Pump the plumb In my arbor 'til my ardor trumped every inner inertia lump sum Chorus 2 All at once Rushing from the sump-pump Or so the story goes Balance we won't know We will see when it gets warm Feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
