Track 6

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Ralph Woodson, Pete Sears

One of the new Trichromes songs written by Robert Hunter.

Red, ripe and lovely
Hanging from a tree
Red, ripe and lovely
Fruit of ecstasy

Food of the gods, love
Falling from a star
Food of the gods, love
Everywhere we are

Chorus
Train leaving on Track Six
Track Six to paradise
Track Six to heaven, baby
Wouldn't that be nice

Once beneath a willow
A sweet thing sat and sighed
Oh how her heart was bleeding
So many tears she cried

First she cried a trickle
Then she cried a stream
Joined the mighty river
Flowing down to New Orleans

[chorus]

Succulent and sweet
Berries on a vine
Sherries from the sky
Sea of apple wine

Rivers of the heart
Rivers running free
Oceans of the soul, love
The winds in harmony

[chorus]

All the seas were silver
All the deserts gold
Who would care to live there
With words of love untold

All the stars were jewels
All the clouds of earth
Were set with shining diamonds
What would it all be worth

Red, ripe and lovely
Hanging from a tree
Red, ripe and lovely
Fruit of ecstasy

Food of the gods, love
Falling from a star
Food of the gods, love
Everywhere we are

[chorus]
[chorus]
[chorus]
