Marshall Parkers Quarry
Lets go swimming down in Marshall Parkers quarry Where they used to get the gravel before the roads were paved Where the alders and the willows and the rushes grow like pillows And the dragon flies are daring and the damsel flies are brave There are turtles on the ledges down in Marshall Parkers Quarry Their ancestors discovered this one hundred years ago They’re content to live their lives out a sleeping in he shadows Dive for safety find some shelter it is all they ever know All my life you have lingered here I and I have lingered with you When the road was hard to see You have graced me in the fluid of your deepness Hold my grateful tears forever always keep a place for me. The water is deep I never found the bottom When I’d throw in a cobble it never would return Though we don’t know the distance to the bottom But those rings across the surface give me other things to learn Chorus So good bye to Marshall Parkers quarry you have been a destination when the circumstances turn I am leaving I am walking from this mountain But the rings across the surface give me other things to learn
