Lyrics: Dream Trader

Dream Trader by Milkwood/Cap’n Swing

There was a man from Maryland who said he could not feel

He had a hard time telling just what was real

To lie beneath the frozen sky searching for a sign

The clouds, they billowed gracefully in strange design (like crystal line, yeah)

 

And as he watched them wane, drifting off to sleep

To dream of sailing ships on down in the Chesapeake

He might have stayed there all day feeling so fine just chugging wine

So fine just chugging wine

So fine just chugging wine

 

They found him in the morning, he was facedown beside a stream

He never did awaken, oh no, from that dream

From that dream, from that dream

  1. I love both versions but somehow the Milkwood version is really impressive to me, I loved Crosby Still and Nash at one stage and it takes me back to that time . Thank you for all the wonderful work you have done in showcasing all of this material for fans and also for the lyrics and info 🙂 Donna , you are orrsome !
