the mystery at ogwen’s farm lyrics – jane siberry

ogwen–bessie’s gone
bessie’s gone away

i looked in the high meadow for her
i think she’s gone
i looked down by the river
and i looked behind the barn

ogwen–bessie’s gone
bessie’s gone away

i saw this girl down by the fence
in the morning mist
she was telling things to bessie
it looked strange–i wonder if…

ogwen–bessie’s gone
bessie’s gone away

well, maybe it’s a blessing
what with winter coming on
because the man who owns this farm
was going to sell her to the yards

oh, i hope she really got away
ogwen–we are old
i guess nothing is ever ours
so much that we don’t know

ogwen–bessie’s gone
bessie’s gone away
