牋牋牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋?The Kind Land?(Serinam)

牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋??1998 Gordon Bok

 

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?This song came to me in the waters off my home over a few hard days and nights in August, 1998.?Mostly it came at night, and once the same tune was came in an unfamiliar language ?not too uncommon in my creative drifts.?Serinam is the only word I kept, because I lover the sound, because it seemed to be a person's name and place name at the same time, and I felt the need to honor the gift in kind.

牋牋牋牋牋?The human history of this land appears to be one of displacement rather than inclusion; the new has tended to drive out the old rather than living with and learning from the old.

牋牋牋牋牋?The Kind Land mourns the passing of generations of people who had to know this land with an intimacy that most present and future occupiers will never know.

牋牋牋牋牋?I write this a year later in the same cove where most of this song came to me, in the good waters, in the kind land, and the same old moon, I'd be willing to bet, will be lifting in a few hours.牋牋牋牋牋?

 

Gordon ?12-string guitar

牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋?O the moon is riding high Serinam, Serinam

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?O the moon is riding high, Serinam

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?She won't look you in the eye, she won't look you in the eye

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?She don't want to see you cry, in the kind land.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?Now it's hard to go ashore in the land, in the land

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?O it's hard to go ashore in the land

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?All the people on the shore, all the people on the shore

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?They don't see us anymore, in the kind land.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?Now the people from the town in the land, in the land

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?All the people from the town in the land

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?They don't mean to take you down, they don't mean to take you down

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?They're still looking for the ground in the kind land.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?They don't know the life we keep in the land, in the land

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?They don't know the life we keep in the land

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?They neither fish nor sow nor reap, neither fish nor sow nor reap

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?And for them the land is cheap, in the kind land.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?And it's sad to see it so in the land, in the land

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?Oh it's sad to see it so in the land

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?But there's one thing it抯 good to know, there's one thing it's good to know

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?As we come so will we go in the kind land.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?O the moon is riding high Serinam, Serinam

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?O the moon is riding high, Serinam

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?She won't look you in the eye, she won't look you in the eye

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?She don't want to make you cry, in the kind land.
