Silhouette

Written in August of 2000 in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina and Nashville, Tennessee

Come with me, oh darlin’ one
You must see the purple sun
Come with me, oh say you will
Meet me up on Shepman’s Hill

Where I can see your silhouette
Framed in the purple sunset
In the heat the June Bugs trill
Way up on Shepman’s Hill

Don’t tell a soul, my darlin’ one
And be alone when you come
Then I’ll know that you love me still
That’s if you run to Shepman’s Hill

Where I can see your silhouette
Framed in the purple sunset
When the sun goes down it leaves a chill
Why, it’s getting dark on Shepman’s Hill

I’ll wait for you, my darlin’ one
As silent as this smoking gun
I said I would, you said you will
You’ll find me here on Shepman’s Hill

Where I could see your silhouette
Framed in the purple sunset
And the sirens wail, high and shrill
So far away from Shepman’s Hill
So far away from Shepman’s Hill
So far away from Shepman’s Hill

Then I’ll know you love me still
That’s if you run to Shepman’s Hill
