The Serpent, The Maiden, and The Bear

Words and Music by Phil Odgers


Standing on the porch

Polaris marks the way due north

The moon was full up in the inky grey

Staring into space

Puts us in our place

Drinking in the Milky Way


Paint the galaxy

Put it up for all to see

The silver river flows the winter way

Beauty in the sky

A comet flashes by

Beyond the sun the tail leads it away


The stars are oh so big and bright

They’ll light our trail tonight

Show me the way

Nova’s distant ray

The serpent, the maiden, and the bear


Standing on the porch

Polaris marks the way due north

The moon was full up in the inky grey

Staring into space

Puts us in our place

Drinking in the Milky Way


The stars are oh so big and bright

They’ll light up our trail tonight

Show me the way

Nova’s distant ray

The serpent, the maiden, and the bear
