Written by Jane Kilgour

lyrics

I knew a young woman once
She had a thing for me
She knew my ways so well
And she sang so sweetly I forgot myself

And I wasn’t always kind
Mostly I just didn’t mind.
And patient she was with me
And reckless I was so we lost

(Chorus)
But when my river runs straight
I will let you know
And when my trunk grows strong
I will let you know
Cause I, I am a seed
And I, I am a creek
Oh and you deserve an ancient oak tree
And a river that meets the sea
Oh you deserve an ancient oak tree
And a river that meets the sea

And I didn’t break her heart
But I took a part of it
And now I’d sell it out
To the lowest bid to lose the weight of it

(Chorus)

about

Jane Kilgour & The Trouts Northampton, Massachusetts

We are The Trouts, a 4-piece acoustic band from Western Massachusetts. We formed in the woods of Hampshire college in 2012 and have been friends ever since. A stand-up bass, a guitar, a mandolin, and a vocalist came together to write songs and play them at house shows, farmers markets, streets, and a few barns. We use the string band as a vehicle to share our indie and soul inspired folk music. ... more
