Lincoln has the jazz world produced a singer-songwriter with


such a unique and compelling
vision of life. tler lyrics celebrate
our most enduring and undervalued relationship: love of familr'.
of earth, of the human spirit, and
rnost of all love of sclf . "when
you're twenty or thirty or even
forty," she says, "the most important thing in a person's life is
another person. But I'm a mature
woman now, ancl there are othcr

Abbey'to win universai acclaint

experiences and achievements

address the full range of Abbe1"-s


concerns. In "Bird Alone" she
offers a moody, autobiographical
picture of what she dubs "a singular life": "Llird alone, flying

2. First there's a woman
3. First came the woman
All through the night
Who follows a man
Who prays and delivers the son
And lives for the light in his eyes
One who's made ready
Usually willing
To enter a world
She dreams to fulfill
And live until everything's done
The great propheciesof the skies
Another soul to bear
And so with everything given to see
A cross we share
She wants to be what he wants to be
And now and then
First there's a woman
Somebody with a crown we wear
Who follows a man
But first there's a woman
And follows him all the way home
Who carries the child
And carries them all the way home

And her vesselsmultiplied
One for every year
When the number of the ships
Descendingfrom the one
Came to number eighty four
She knew here work was done

While a courting nightingale


Sang the whole night through
Then just like the morning
In a blaze of light
She spread her wings of miracles
And disappearedfrom sight

Sailing through the heavens
On another trip
I expect to seeyou
On another day
Living in another light

, Some folks talk about the love they're feeling.


Talk about the love they need.
Others say that love is waiting.
In the meantime watch my speed.
I got love for climbing mountains, love for sailing over seas.
I got love there is no stopping, love for sending like the breeze.
To Chorus:
When my life on earth is over and the struggle here is done.
I will find a new dimension in the rising sun.
In the place that is forever, I will spread my wings and fly.
If you seea streak of lightning, I'll be passingby.
To Chorus:

The storm that is over again,

2. My father built us houses.
And he kept his folks inside,
His images were stolen,
And his beauty was denied,

6. Sometimesthe river's calling,


Sometimesthe shadowsfall,
That's when he's like a mountain.
Rising master over all,

3. My brothers are unhappy,


My sisters they are too,
My mother prays for glory,
And my father stands accused,

7. This story of my father,


Is the one I tell and give,
It's the power and the glory,
Of the life I make and live.

4. My father, yes my father,


A brave and skillful man,
He fed and served his people,
With the magic of his hand,

8. My father has a kingdom,


My father wears a crown.
And he lives within the people,
In the lives he handed down,

5. My father, yes my father,


His soul was sorely tried,
'Cause his images
were stolen,
And his beauty was denied,

9. My father has a kingdom,


My father wears a crown,
And through the spirit of my mother, Lord,
The crown was handed down.

Additional Lyrics
2. He gathers pretty flowers
And he hums, sometimeshe sings
His melody is mellow
And around the world it rings
He is my world's delight
And in the evening out of sight
He is starrin' in the night
The rising sun.

3. SometimesI run to meet him


And I tell him of my dreams
His gaze is steady on me
And I'm blushing from his beams
His conversationtsfine
And I love to dance and dine
With the movin' groovin'
Early rising sun.

4. He brings the many colors


For the facesthat I wear
His face is like a diamond
And it's shining everywhere
He is a central figure
And he makes the world grow bigger
Just becausehe is the early rising sun
Just becausehe is the early rising sun.

3. There's a natural obligation
2. There's a hand to rock the cradle
To what we own and claim
And a hand to help us stand
Possessingand belonging to
With a gentle kind of motion
Acknowledging a name
As it moves across the land
So keep your hand wide open
And the hand's unclenched and open
Ifyou're needing love today
Gifts of life and love it brings
'Cause you can't looseit even if you
So keep your hand wide open
it all away.
Throw

Suddenly love
And you and me knowing the heartbreak life brings
But you are the one I'm thinking of
Whenever my heart sings
Now that there's love the magical thing
Given for someoneto share
Then over the years you and me loye
Our love will always be here
Our love will always be there

Additional Lyrics
When I'm called home
I will sing a song
And tell them of a beggar's life
Where everything goeswrong
Where everybody's hopes and dreams
Are shattered by the wind.
I'll tell them of a ghosty world
Of us and they and him.
I'll tell them how the shadows fall
When they call me home.
When I'm called home
I will tell the stars
Of the battles that were lost
In a world of wars.
I will tell the rivers
Of the children lost at sea
Of how a soul is bartered
And what it costs a spirit free.
Hallelujah tell a story, oh
When they call me home.

when thev call me home.
