"Portales"

[Verse 1]
North of Portales, above the Caprock plain
She was lookin' out the window at the New Mexico rain
I'd found her sleepin' in a haystack
I left her dreaming and I never went back

[Chorus]
Hand-woven love songs [in/and?] sadness
Is all I sing when I think of you
Morning love, sighs, goodbyes, and madness
Is all I ever gave to you

[Verse 2]
She was a woman, she was barely twenty-five
So nice to look at, wild and alive
She was in love, you know, but I could not see
When she'd say her prayers she'd say one for me

[Chorus]
And I said, hand-woven love songs of sadness
Is all I sing when I think of you
Morning love, sighs, goodbyes, and madness
Was all I ever gave to you

[Verse 3]
Sometime that winter I heard that old [row?]
The high wild wind, cold and alone
She gave me an old ring for my hand
Said, "I know you're leaving, won't you love me while you can"

[Chorus]
Hand-woven love songs of sadness
Is all I sing when I think of you
Morning love, sighs, goodbyes, and madness
Was all I ever gave to you
Was all I ever gave to you
