Sara, Sara Whatever made you want to change your mind Sara, Sara So easy to look at, so hard to define.
I can still see them playing with their pails in the sand They run to the water their buckets to fill I can still see the shells falling out of their hands As they follow each other back up the hill.
Sara, Sara Sweet virgin angel, sweet love of my life Sara, Sara Radiant jewel, mystical wife.
Sleeping in the woods by a fire in the night Drinking white rum in a Portugal bar Them playing leapfrog and hearing about Snow White You in the marketplace in Savanna-la-Mar.
Sara, Sara It's all so clear, I could never forget Sara, Sara Loving you is the one thing I'll never regret.
I can still hear the sounds of those Methodist bells I'd taken the cure and had just gotten through Staying up for day in the Chelsea Hotel Writing "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" for you.
Sara, Sara Wherever we travel we're never apart Sara, Sara Beautiful lady, so dear to my heart. How did I meet you ? I don't know A messenger sent me in a tropical storm You were there in the winter, moonlight on the snow And on Lily Pond Lane when the weather was warm.
Sara, Sara Scorpio Sphinx in a calico dress Sara, Sara You must forgive me my unworthiness.

Sara, Sara Glamorous nymph with an arrow and bow Sara, Sara Don't ever leave me, don't ever go.
