Schwa Lyrics

Pass the Cider...Pass the Rum

Lyricist: Ed McGee
Vocalist: Ed McGee
Pass the cider, pass the rum.
Stoke the fire, my fingers are numb,
but I'm gonna stay here all night long.
This field on this hilltop's as good as my home.
We sit 'round the bonfire and our circle's so strong.
We'll still be singing come the light, come the dawn.

I'm down in Athens again,
I'm out the porch with Matt's mandolin.
But it's all in my mind--
I'd like to go back, it's been a long time,
	but I think it's better we stayed.
	Those are songs that we've already played.
	We'll keep the memories pure as gold,
	and let the stories always be told.

We used to climb up that tower,
you could see for miles, we'd stay there for hours.
We could climb it again--
the view hasn't changed, but it won't be the same.
	You know, I think it's better we stayed.
	Those are songs that we've already played.
	We'll keep the memories pure as gold,
	and let the stories always be told.

We were high as the moon
and Steph was laughing at us, she says, "you guys are cartoons."
But that was Cary and me,
and now he is gone.  I think they all moved on.
	You know, I really wish they had stayed.
	There are still a few songs we could play.
	Maybe it's all just as well,
	but I've got so many stories to tell.
	I've got so many stories to tell.

So pass the cider, pass the rum.
Stoke the fire, my fingers are numb,
but I'm gonna stay here all night long.
This field on this hilltop's just as good as my home.
We sit 'round the bonfire and our circle's so strong.
We'll still be singing come the light, come the dawn.
