Deep in the Grain

I'll build you a mantle of hickory wood
Cut from the heart where the timber is good
I'll plain it smooth and darken the stain
You'll see your reflection deep in the grain

Deep in the grain, down in the core
This is like nothing that I've known before
It's part of me now, in the blood and the vein
I love you deep, deep in the grain

And under that mantle I'll build you a fire
Just a few branches is all I require
I'll warm you and keep out the cold wind and rain
You'll feel my love burning deep in the grain

Deep in the grain, down in the core
This is like nothing that I've known before
It's part of me now, in the blood and the vein
I love you deep, deep in the grain
