Stable song lyrics Gregory Alan Isakov

Remember when our songs were just like prayers
Like gospel hymns that you caught in the air?
Come down, come down sweet reverence
Unto my simple house and ring
And ring
Ring like silver, ring like gold
Ring out those ghosts on the Ohio
Ring like clear day wedding bells
Were we the belly of the beast or the sword that fell?
We’ll never tell
And come to me clear and cold
On some sea
Watch the world spin in waves
Mad machine
Now I’ve gone crazy, couldn’t you tell?
You threw stones at the stars, but the whole sky fell
Now I’m covered up in straw, belly up on a table
Well, I drank and sang, and passed in the stable (hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm-hmm)
And that tall grass grows high and brown
Well, I dragged you straight in the muddy ground
And you sent me back to where I roam
Well, I cursed and I cried, but now I know
Oh, now I know
And I ran back to that hollow again
The moon was just a sliver back then
And I ached for my heart like some tin man
When it came, oh, it beat and it boiled and it rang
Oh, it’s ringing
Ring like crazy, ring like hell
Turn me back into that wild-haired gale
Ring like silver, ring like gold
Turn these diamonds straight back into coal
Turn these diamonds straight back into coal (hmm-hmm)
