Fig Tree Joe

Fig tree Joe an Arapaho
A man I'll never know
Lived in a desert so subtle
With just his tree that grows
A fruit so lithe and supple
Only he and god could know.

Fig tree Joe, an Arapaho
A man I'll never know
He came to speak of wisdom
That on his fig tree grows
For no ears there to listen
His wisdom I'll never know

Fig tree Joe, an Arapaho
A man I'll never know
He came to me whilst dreaming
And as the cock did crow
I awoke to see him leaving
No memories there to show

Fig tree Joe an Arapaho
A man I'll never know
His message lost to weather
For the seeds will never grow
And I'll remain forever
Lost to what he knows
