He Was The One Who Knew

This was part of the ‘who knew’ song challenge, recorded live at Colleen Dillon’s on 12-09-15, with Greg Connor on guitar. Love his part, didn’t edit out anything, even left the comments on the beginning and end.

(This is a story about Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, know for his beautiful, yet rebellious verses that lilt up the world in the 70s)

he wore the boots of a soldier
he knew the danger of love
with the world upon his shoulders
and he signed his name in blood
(beneath the hidden stars above)s

he found love in the ashes
and he laid it in my hands
it was twisted around the branches
blown across the sand

he was the one who knew
he was the one who knew
all the precious words
that I should say to you

just a simple man named pablo
he knew the day our love was born
he was light and bread and shadows
cast out upon the stones

tales of love and anguish
I’d read his words to you
in english and spanish
about all the things he knew

he was the one who knew
he was the one who knew
all the precious words
that I should say to you
