Jupiter

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Grahame Lesh

A new song with "uncovered" Hunter lyrics recorded by Midnight North. I don't know why it's called Jupiter.

At a crossroads see the sky
Slowly twisting as the world goes by
Wish I may, I wish I might
Had my fill of wishing tonight

Wanderer tell me why
Brave man blush and young girls cry
Rich man push and poor man pull
Bury promises from their soul

I wanna do what I think I should
Carve my coffin out of juniper wood
Build my house of sticks and sand
When it falls I won't give a damn

All the ocean in a broken cup
Pour and pour still it don't fill up
Wind on the water could mean rain
Thunder bolts ripping up the plain

Wind in the firmament wild and free
Bring down justice in the seventh degree
Roll you thunder, blow you horn
Bright full tones from the thunder born

I wanna do what I think I should
Carve my coffin out of juniper wood
Build my house of sticks and sand
When it falls I won't give a damn

Said and done, the moment's passed
Recalling darkness I will win so fast
Had no time to rescue my dreams
From the confluence of swollen streams
Beneath the sea, joyous shower
Mingle their waters as the tide rolls out

Wanderer shine all night
Ride a storm in the midnight sky
Swing down low, the night so black
Ace of diamonds in the zodiac
