Jacques Levy - Isis lyrics

[Verse 1]
I married Isis on the fifth day of May
But I could not hold on to her very long
So I cut off my hair and I rode straight away
For the wild unknown country where I could not go wrong

[Verse 2]
I came to a high place of darkness and light
Dividing line ran through the center of town
I hitched up my pony to a post on the right
Went in to a laundry to wash my clothes down

[Verse 3]
A man in the corner approached me for a match
I knew right away, he was not ordinary
He said “Are you looking for something easy to catch?”
Said “I got no money.” He said “That ain't necessary”

[Verse 4]
We set out that night for the cold in the North
I gave him my blanket, and he gave me his word
I said “Where are we going?” He said we'd be back by the fourth
I said “That's the best news that I've ever heard”

[Verse 5]
I was thinking about turquoise, I was thinking about gold
I was thinking about diamonds and the world's biggest necklace
As we rode through the canyons, through the devilish cold
I was thinking about Isis, how she thought I was so reckless

[Verse 6]
How she told me that one day we would meet up again
And things would be different, the next time we wed
If I only could hang on and just be her friend
I still can't remember all the best things she said

[Verse 7]
We came to the pyramids, all embedded in ice
[Lyrics from: https:/]
He said “There's a body I'm trying to find
If I carry it out it'll bring a good price”
'Twas then that I knew what he had on his mind

[Verse 8]
The wind it was a-howlin and the snow was outrageous
We chopped through the night, and we chopped through the dawn
When he died I was hopin that it wasn't contagious
But I made up my mind that I had to go on

[Verse 9]
I broke into the tomb, but the casket was empty
There was no jewels, no nothing; I felt I'd been had
When I saw that my partner was just being friendly
When I took up his offer I musta been mad

[Verse 10]
I picked up his body and I dragged him inside
Threw him down in the hole and I put back the cover
I said a quick prayer then I felt satisfied
Then I rode back to find Isis, just to tell her I love her

[Verse 11]
She was there in the meadow, where the creek used to rise
Blinded by sleep and in need of a bed
I came in from the East, with the sun in my eyes
I cursed her one time, then I rode on ahead

[Verse 12]
She said “Where you been?” I said “No place special”
She said “You look different.” I said “Well.. I guess”
She said “You been gone.” I said “That's only natural”
She said “You going to stay?” I said “If you want me to, yes”

[Verse 13]
Isis, oh, Isis, you mystical child
What drives me to you is what drives me insane
I still can remember the way that you smiled
On the fifth day of May in the drizzling rain
