From the recording Dreams & Ghosts: A Family Album

Lyrics

There’s a hook that hangs in the kitchen
I can see the water drippin’
Through the cheese cloth from berries hidden within
And a cuckoo calls from the wall
Along side five others in the hall
Old grandfather clock resides over them all
 
Poppy is down with his tools
Scornin’ the women upstairs talking like fools
He says “Down here in the basement, boys, that’s where we keep it cool.”
Nana’s in the garden outside 
Picking plums and rhubarb for her pies
If you think you’ll get away with just one slice, don’t even try
 
On 93 Lewis Street I hear the stories 
of those who came before me
When I leave, I carry them with me 
to remember my family
 
Oh when the wind blows and the sun shines in the sky
Oh when the river knows your face as well as mine, I know why
 
On 93 Lewis Street I hear the stories 
of those who came before me
When I leave, I carry them with me ...
 
I’m lying in a pile of leaves
Can’t be more than twelve or thirteen
I look out and up into that tree
