Deer Fly Why Don't You

... leave me alone

I took a walk in the woods today, alone. That was my intention, the deer fly thought otherwise. Evidently they like summer (and me) as much as I do. And on my walk I was reminded of a boy and his guitar and song he shared with me... and still does.

Well a friend done told me that he couldn’t get around.
Had the slowest team of horses in town.
Said he didn’t know what he ever could do.
Tried a switch and a shout and he even threw his shoe.

Deer fly why don’t you... leave me alone
Deer fly why don’t you... get on home

The news blew through like the shot of a gun.
Young Bill Williker's horses wouldn’t run.
A man was called who had the fastest team
And asked his scheme to make his team scream.

Deer fly why don’t you... leave me alone
Deer fly why don’t you... get on home

He said, If you want to make your horses run like the wind
Invite a fly to a party on your horse with its kin.
Then hold on tight cause your gonna go fast
The hungry deer fly holding on fast.

Deer fly why don’t you... leave me alone
Deer fly why don’t you... get on home

* I am taking a blog break for awhile, time to put it up on the shelf. For how long? I can't really say. It frustrates me when things don't get the attention they deserve and I know, I've been blog lazy lately.

But, I'll be back.
