Tortoise & Bonnie Prince Billy - Calvary Cross

Tortoise and Bonnie “Prince” Billy - “Calvary Cross”

Well you know that I still don’t want to do
When there’s just one way to get through
Sometimes I still don’t want to go through with it
There are other ways I used to think
to find my way around
the wood & the caves & the bad woman’s ways
that are always to be found
and I have done enough right
dirt & wrong can now boaster my might
and love I can’t find it again
in someone sitting close in the flashes of sin
there are other ways, I used to think,
to find my way around
the woods & the smell & the word of farewell
that I always had to sound
now there is just one way
I stretch out my arms & cry to that
just one day
I number the friends & the family that love me
I welcome the ring of the moonlight above me
and I wander, and lay in whatever old bed
with good, earthly music singing into my head

    Obviously, Richard and Linda’s is the best, but this is a perfect example of an interesting/well-done cover.
