FLESH AND BLOOD Johnny Cash Beside a singin' mountain stream Where the willow grew Where the silver leaf of maple Sparkled in the mornin' dew I braided twigs of willow Made a string of buckeye beads; But flesh and blood needs flesh and blood And you're the one I need Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood And you're the one I need. I leaned against a bark of birch And I breathed the honey dew I saw a north-bound flock of geese Against a sky of baby blue Beside the lily pads I carved a whistle from a reed; Mother Nature's quite a lady But you're the one I need But flesh and blood needs flesh and blood And you're the one I need. A cardinal sang just for me And I thanked him for the song Then the sun went slowly down the west And I had to move along These were some of the things On which my mind and spirit feed; But flesh and blood needs flesh and blood And you're the one I need Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood And you're the one I need. So when this day was ended I was still not satisfied For I knew everything I touched Would wither and would die And love is all that will remain And grow from all these seed; Mother Nature's quite a lady But you're the one I need Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood And you're the one I need.
