Country Song

He made his way to the border 
In the shadow under the trees 
Down by a stream in a hollow 
Turn your head feel the breeze 
And the red Queen was waiting for the news 
For the white King to move 
And the balance hung upon the head of one who tried 
To stay within the shadows 
And keep his undercover secret tight 
They let him in by a backway 
Into a chamber reserved for the Queen 
She took the note that he gave her 
Opened it slowly and started to read 
Run to the treasury and bring me back some gold 
Give it to the pawn who came, she cried 
He says the white King thinks the game of chess is wrong 
And all the courtiers crowded her 
And this is what she told the gathered round 
Go to the store by the dungeon 
Take all the red paint take all the white 
Make up a newborn colour 
Cover your neighbor we'll be all right 
There will be no game today, she cried across the board 
Everyday will be a holiday 
And all the pieces cheered as tidings spread abroad 
And the Pink Queen sat 
And smiled at the cat who smiled back
