Cassandra Wilson Red Guitar
(from: Another Country 2012)

Wash my face with blue water
Lay my head on white linen
Morning comes, drink black coffee
Then I play my song on red guitar

Take my flight through blue heavens
Walk my path in green gardens
Drive my car on black highway
Then I play my song on red guitar

Everyday the colors come and dance for me
Every night they fade and disappear
We are merely shadows floating in this world
We got nothing to lose, we got nothing to fear
oh no, no, no, no, no

Drink my wine from pink glasses
Take the stage with purple princes
Love my man, yellow roses
Then play my song on red guitar
Play my song on red guitar
Play my song on red guitar
