Paul Kantner)

Martha she listens for the ticking of my footsteps, patiently
She sifts the hairy air that's worn and woodswept,
She does as she pleases,
She listens for me;

Martha she calls to me from a feather in the meadow,

You can dance and sing and walk with me;
"Fly to me:"
And dreams will fade and shadows grow in weed;

She does as she pleases,

Her heels rise for me;
As she murmurs to her feet,
My love, she talks to winking windows,
Caught for me;
She separates in laughter to my side,
She does as she pleases,
Her heels rise for me;

And it's waiting there for me;

Martha, she keeps her heart in a broken lock,
What a great thing to be free;
She weeds apart through a token lock;

She weeps time, starts unspoken;
But when the gate swings,
There she'll be,
There she'll be

In green sun... On blue Earth,
Under warm running showers
