Darkest Hour Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

It's the tenth of January and I still ain't had no sleep 

She comes waItzing in the nighttime made of wings 

She is dressed up like a bandit with a hundred sparkling rings 

Looking for my company to keep 


Coming closer to me, she doesn't say a word 

In the shadow of the carved rock tower 

Where the sounds of the night were the only things we heard 

In my darkest hour 


She don't want to hear no secrets, she would guarantee me that 

She knows there ain't no words that can describe her 

With her white silk scarves and her black Spanish hat 

She knows there ain't no way I can deny her 


Yes, her blue velvet perfume filling up the night 

The guards are all asleep that watch the tower 

The moon light held her breast as she easily undressed 

In my darkest hour 


Her father's in his chambers with his friends all gathered around 

They are plotting their enemy's demise 

With their last detail done, they await the coming sun 

While I am staring at my lover's eyes 


Her brothers and her sisters are all through for tonight 

Pretending that they've just come into power 

But she far most of all, knows that they can only fall 

In my darkest hour 


Hungry wings, their melodies, while my love awakens me 

In the midst of the sunburst first light 

Her hands are holding up the skies as I hid my opened eyes 

Every move just for herself and that's so right 


Soon I went along my way with no words that could explain 

As she began descending to the tower 

Her safety now concerns me, her circumstance to blame 

In my darkest hour
