Horn Of The Unicorn

Words and Music by Raccoon

As recorded on White Horse Ranch Sessions

 

 

On a boat out in the sea

I saw a laughing unicorn with gossamer wings

On the shore about a mile or two away

The white knight rode his maverick stallion away

 

Bearing no gifts for the lady in red

The white knight took his silver sword to his head

I donít like the games that the kings in the castles play

And when I work a day I want my dayís pay

 

And out on the highway I ainít got too many cares

When I feel like movin' I stick my thumb in the air

 

With the horn of the unicorn

You hold your fate in your hands

So the horn of the unicorn

It was meant for God and not for man

 

Oh rain, rain, rain, for the pleasure or the pain

Oh rain, rain, rain, am I ever gonna feel this way again?

Am I ever gonna feel this way again?

 

Iím just a melancholy man

Livin' with a guitar in my hand

It really doesnít matter how I feel

Iíll probably never taste another home-cooked meal

Iíll probably never taste another home-cooked meal

 

Oh ainít that a shame

I never really learned how to play that game

Oh ainít that a shame

I bet that you wish you could say the same

I bet that you wish that you could say the same

 

Oh rain, rain, rain - And the tempest winds wail

Rain, rain, rain - You make it hard to find the trail

You make it kinda hard to find the trail

 

On a boat out in the sea

Stood a laughing unicorn with gossamer wings

And on the shore about a mile or two away

A sad man hung his head as he began to pray

 

With the horn of the unicorn

You hold your fate in your hands

So the horn of the unicorn

It was meant for God and not for man

It was meant for God and not for man
