      Mary Chapin Carpenter - Halley Came To Jackson Música y Letra

      Late one night when the wind was still
      Daddy brought the baby to the window sill
      To see a bit of heaven shoot across the sky
      The one and only time Daddy saw it fly
      
      It came from the east just as bright as a torch
      The neighbors had a party on their porch
      Daddy rocked the baby, Mother said "amen"
      When Halley came to visit in nineteen ten
      
      Now back then Jackson was a real small town
      And it's not every night a comet comes around
      It was almost eighty years since its last time through
      So I bet your mother would've said "amen" too
      
      As its tail stretched out like a stardust streak
      The papers wrote about it every day for a week
      They wondered where it's going and where it's been
      When Halley came to Jackson in 1910
      
      Now Daddy told the baby sleeping in his arms
      To dream a little dream of a comet's charms
      And he made a little wish as she slept so sound
      In nineteen eighty-six that wish came 'round 
      
      It came from the east, just as bright as a torch
      She saw it in the sky from her daddy's porch
      As heavenly sent as it was back then
      When Halley came to Jackson in nineteen ten
      Late one night when the wind was still
