California Blue Lake Lumber

lyrics

Once the prairie turned by and by, by and by
the backroads and the main roads by and by, by and by
memories of tall grass and the clank of Levit's boys
fill my baby's hammer and it makes a lot of noise

california blue lake lumber
keeps my baby safe and warm
boxes made of ticky tacky
keep him singing in the storm

once the flatland sang by and by, by and by
windswept summers on the griddle, by and by, by and by
the sweetest smell of blacktop and that graveyard's dearest
doves
fill the pages overflowing of my one true love

california blue lake lumber
keeps my baby safe and warm
boxes made of ticky tacky
keep him singing in the storm

now we're headed to the mountains by and by, by and by
'round the Shenandoah river by and by, by and by
Like that tangled trample wheat, miles left to roam
me and my sweet darling gonna make that place our home
