Lyrics
Fly Up, You Fire Joe Maher The Gettings Good, Darby OGill, 2004 On a clear autumn day comes a man out a-gathering sticks And his eye wanders off on the heels of a gutty-bright girl with magic hips And oh, how his own heart is aching And each gutty cry is a stick that hes breaking A kindle spark leaps from a hand that is shaking Burn, fire, all to ashes - cooling breath; the ashes scatter Burn, you hope, and rage desire Fly up, you fire On the back of a great horse a woman comes galloping wild As she thinks of a man who gave her a rocky-cart ride, and then a child And oh, how the tall trees are trying To raise up a rock that is dieing She spurs on a horse that is flying On a rocky bay shore two children go tumbling about A boy and a girl, she with a bright bow in her hair; and he without And oh, how their laughter is ringing And each dull rock is a separate joy singing As heavenward fly all the dreams that theyre flinging
