video of a live version from 1971:
Long about now He's heading home Back from the rain Burned to the ground His ashes will rise black butterflies Tapping at my window pane He'll want to rest within my design All the way to the end Lighting my skies all up inside again Dimming Summer Long about now He's headin' home Drowning the games That steel a man Long about now He'll shrug and sigh and need me again
