Harmony Heifers

Words/Music © by Deborah Baudoin

Late one night, coming home from a party,
I was all alone; I was far away from town.
Just one mile from the dead of the forest
When my fan belt broke and my engine melted down.

I knew right then I was gonna do some walking,
Pulled my coat up tight as I faced the chilling air.
Headed straight down for the dead of the forest,
Never knew for a moment just what I would find there.

There were three cows dancing Ďround a fire after midnight,
All sang together as their laughter filled the air.
They jumped and they twirled and they howled at the moon.
They were harmony heifers in their wintry lair.

Singing, hey, ho, away we go
To dance our joy into patterns on the snow.
Hey, hi, the time is nigh
To sing our praises to the Lady in the sky!

Well, I closed my eyes, then I opened them slowly.
My life was changed by the vision that I saw.
Never knew that cows could be graceful and elegant--
Bovine beauty filled my soul with awe.

One sang bass and the other sang melody;
One chimed in in the middle of the tune.
They were wild; they were free; they were lost in the moment.
They were harmony heifers by the light of the moon!

Singing, hey, ho, away we go
To dance our joy into patterns on the snow.
Hey, hi, the time is nigh
To sing our praises to the Lady in the sky!

I came away from the dance in the forest
With a heart so full I would never be the same.
Though Iíve never been back to the dead of the forest,
Iím a harmony heifer, and I proudly bear the name!

Singing, hey, ho, away we go
To dance our joy into patterns on the snow.
Hey, hi, the time is nigh
To sing our praises to the Lady in the sky!
