Hannah (Upcountry) [demo]

Remastered version with reduced instrumentation.

There’s lightning on the skyline
But I can’t hear a sound
I used to stand for something
Now I can’t find solid ground

Tom’s gone to Hilo
And Sammy’s gone to sea
But Hannah’s gone upcountry
She wouldn’t wait for me

The wind bites like a razor
When those Easterlies veer round
The moon floats high and lonesome
Peering through the clouds

Tom’s gone to Hilo
And Sammy’s gone to sea
But Hannah’s gone upcountry
She wouldn’t wait for me

Some fell where they were standing
Some are glory bound
But Hannah’s gone to the mountains
And she’s never coming down

Tom’s gone to Hilo
And Sammy’s gone to sea
But Hannah’s gone upcountry
She wouldn’t wait for me

There’s lightning on the skyline
But I can’t hear a sound
I used to stand for something
Now I can’t find solid ground

Tom’s gone to Hilo
And Johnny’s gone to sea
But Hannah’s up the country
She wouldn’t wait for me

Yes, Hannah’s gone upcountry
She won’t even write to me
