The Shadowman - By Dan MclLhenny

Is the shadowman wavin’ hello or goodbye? 

Nobody knows... but the shadowman knows 

He shows up early - goes home well before dark 

He’s the quietest dude, ‘tis so, ‘tis so   

Reckon he’d be an asset in the orchard - Gwen 

...He could grab all the fruit way up top 

We wouldn’t hav’tah buy a new ladder - Ben 

And that’d help our slim budget a lot, a lot 

That’d help our slim budget a lot 

Is the shadowman coming or going away? 

He’s tall as the dickens the chickens all say 

We oughta recruit him without further delay 

And get the pickin’ outta the way…okay? 

Heck ya, get it outta the way! 

Next day the gray skies came 

Insisting it rain, drop after drop 

It poured and poured and poured 

Then finally dropped to a stop 

We never saw the giant guy again 

Or even had time to become his friend 

Funny how life just sends what it sends 

Then suddenly splits like the hurried breeze 

To still these ripened apple trees 

Leaving us a hefty score of work to be done 

Beneath the warm Washington Sun 

While we wonder and wonder... 

Was the shadowman wavin’ hello or goodbye? 

Nobody knows... but the shadowman knows 

He shows up early - goes home well before dark 

He’s the quietest dude, ‘tis so, ‘tis so
