Ella Mae by Greg Brown Ella Mae lyrics [Spoken introduction:] My grandparents on my father's side had a strawberry farm. It's a Beautiful thing, a beautiful occupation.... a strawberry farm. We Always used to try to go down there at just the right time of year. "Oh, are the, are the berries ready? Oh. Good!" Ella Mae - the redwings returned today A little rain fell in the morning The afternoon was clear An' that song you loved to hear Was filling up the fence row where the birds all go To talk over their long journey and sing. Ella Mae - all the gifts you gave Tremble in my life like a startled deer You gave me my Pa Who is in me as you are And the southern piney hills The clear water and the running rills That tumbled through the lives of us all. Six big men and one big strong woman You and little Granpa David raised up there They all had families We all come back to see you You hugged us all in turn Cocked you head and said we'd grown And touched us with your hands That smelled like bread Ella Mae - it's a clear warm summer's day The young birds are trying out their wings Ah it's something to see them try To get up there and fly And my own child is bound to do the same Today she learned three birds' names. Ella Mae - I can see you plain as day Sailing out like a ship to your garden In your old wide-brim straw hat With a long handled hoe in your hand. Pausing at the gate I see you look south to the pond A long time quiet smile on your face. Ella Mae - when your David went away After cutting brush all day long Well, your life just slowly closed Like a worn out autumn rose You could not find the bread You could not make your lonesome bed Or really do a thing but rise and go. Ella Mae - the redwings left today Passing in a long cloud of wings They're headed down your way They'll be there in a couple of days They'll sing that song you loved As they fly above Your resting place by David in the pines.
