Who can guess the secret of the sea?

Who can guess the secret of the sea?

If you can guess the secret of my love for you

Then we both could know the secret of the sea

words Woody Guthrie 1939

music Jay Bennett / Jeff Tweedy 1999

Jay Bennett we love you so very, very deeply.

The tears we shed together will be shed again,

and again and again. We will cry, and cry until

we can both know the secret of the sea.
