Discovered this song years ago living in Missouri, driving around Adair Co. on one of my infrequent weekend afternoon trips around the county photographing cemeteries. I had to pull over and listen to the lyrics (Joni Mitchell’s). Tom Rush still puts on a great show and is touring all the time. Definitely worth checking out if you get the chance. He’s one of the greats.
Now the warriors of winter they give a cold triumphant shout
All that stays is dying and all that lives is getting out
See the geese in chevron flight
Flapping and a-racin on before the snow
Got the urge for going they’ve got the wings to go.
