Beside a singing mountain stream
Where the willow grew,
Where the silver leaf of maple
Sparkled in the morning dew,
I braided twigs of willows
Made a string of buckeye beads.
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.

I leaned against a bark of birch,
And I breathed the honey dew.
I saw a northbound 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.

So when this day was ended
I was still not satisfied.
For I knew everything I touched
Would wither and would die.
And love is all that will remain
And grow from all these seeds.
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.
