Shadows On The Sky - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

See the river deep and wide
Could be free on the other side
Oh, cross the water
When the gun and the knife have gone
Who'll be here when tomorrow comes
Oh, living in fear
Sunrise, sunset, sunrise
Over the rainbow they fly
Shadows on the sky

Hear the sound that fills the skies
Killer man with dollar eyes
Oh, bringing disaster
You can stand, you can run
When you hear the sound of a gun
Moving closer

Sunrise, sunset, sunrise
Over the rainbow they fly
Shadows on the sky

And as far as the eye can see
Black as night is the cloud you're under
There's a chance that it cannot be
Hear the cries like the rolling thunder

Sunrise, sunset, sunrise
Over the rainbow they fly
Shadows on the sky
