Festival Love (Mark Graham) We were standing round picking some bluegrass I had me a half dozen beers A bottle of Jack in my pocket, my friends Well I hadn't felt that good in years She was standing there picking the banjo She was pickin' and lookin' just fine My heart it went wild when she looked up and smiled And passed me her bottle of wine It was festival love in the moonlight Sure as the stars shone above And there in a flash I was feeling such passion That old demon festival love She asked for a drink of my whiskey And I bummed her last cigarette The sparks theyWe were flyin' as we strolled towards the pines To play fiddle and banjo duets We played there for nearly an hour And I put my hand on her knee In about half a second we was necking and pecking All down on the ground 'neath those trees It was festival love in the moonlight Sure as the stars shone above Three in the morning it came without warning That old demon festival love We started for her tent together When the world seemed to twist and to veer I insulted my shoes with three kinds of booze And passed out at the feet of my dear When I woke from my drug-induced slumber The sunlight was hurting my eyes I was shocked to discover my festival lover Had her arm around some other guy It was festival love in the daylight Sure as the sun shone above But I knew in my sorrow there was always tomorrow That old demon festival love Copyright Mark Graham MC
