Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe
Cold mountain water
Don't ever swim there
Just stand on the edge
And look in there

And you might see
A woman down there
They say some days
Up she comes
Up she rises
As if out of nowhere

Wearing Victorian dress
She was calling her pet
"Snowflake!  Snowflake!"
Tumbling like a cloud
That has drowned in the lake
Just like a poor, porcelain doll


Her eyes are open
But no one's home
The clock has stopped
So long she's gone
No one's home
Her old dog is sleeping
His legs are frail now
But when he dreams
He runs...

Along long beaches and sticky fields
Through the Spooky Woods looking for her

The beds are made
The table is laid
The door is open
Someone is calling
It's a woman

"Here boy!  Here boy!
You've come home!
I've got an old bone and a biscuit
And so much love"

"Miss me?
Did you miss me?
Here's the kitchen
There's your basket
Here's the hall
That's where you wait for me
Here's the bedroom
You're not allowed in there
Here's my lap
That's where you rest your head"

"Here boy!  
Oh, you're a good boy!
You've come home!
You've come home...
Come home...!"

Woof! Woof!
