FLESH AND BLOOD 
Recorded by: Johnny Cash 
Written by: Johnny Cash 

[1] Beside a Singin' [4] Mountain Stream 
[1] Where the Willow grew 
Where the [4] Silver Leaf of [1] Maple 
Sparkled [2] in the Mornin' [5] Dew 
I [1] braided Twigs of [4] Willows 
Made a [1] String of Buckeye Beads; 
But [4] Flesh And Blood need [1] Flesh And Blood 
And [4] you're the one I [1] need 
[4] Flesh And Blood need [1] Flesh And Blood 
And [4] you're the one I [1] need. 

I leaned against a Bark of Birch 
And I breathed the Honey Dew 
I saw a North-bound Flock of Geese 
Against a Sky of Baby Blue 
Beside the Lily Pads 
I carved a Whistle from a Reed; 
Mother Nature's quite a Lady 
But you're the one I need 
Flesh And Blood need Flesh And Blood 
And you're the one I need. 

A Cardinal sang just for me 
And I thanked him for the Song 
Then the Sun went slowly down the West 
And I had to move along 
These were some of the things 
On which my Mind and Spirit feed; 
But Flesh And Blood need Flesh And Blood 
And you're the one I need 
Flesh And Blood need Flesh And Blood 
And you're the one I need.  

[SPOKEN]  
So when this Day was ended 
I was still not satisfied 
For I knew ev'rything I touched 
Would wither and would die 
And Love is all that will remain 
And grow from all these Seed; 

[SUNG]
Mother Nature's quite a Lady 
But you're the one I need 
Flesh And Blood need Flesh And Blood 
And you're the one I need.
