You Are Love Song Lyrics

You Are Love (The upper deck of the "Cotton Blossom," Later that night.
It is moonlight, just after the storm clouds have broken.
RAVENAL stands near a water barrel. He looks about, anxiously
awaiting MAGNOLIA. He blows on his fingers, and moves about
a little to take off the chill that is characteristic of
southern nights. He hears a noise. He peers into the darkness
and calls eagerly off L.:)

That you, Nola?

(off stage)
Nope - it's me.

(quickly filling dipper from water barrel to carry
on the illusion that he came out here to get a drink)
Hello, Windy -

Come over to take a look at the moorings -
(He crosses RAVENAL)
Kind o' cool for you to be stayin' out on deck, ain't it?

(just finishing drink)
Er - no - not at all - I'm very thirsty, that's all.
(He fills the dipper again to prove it. WINDY exits, chuckling.
RAVENAL pours the balance of the dipper's contents into the fire
bucket. He hears a whistle off stage)
That you, Nola?
(MAGNOLIA enters. She carries a porcelain water pitcher.
He flings the dipper away and rushes to her impetuously.
He embraces her)
How did you get away?

I can't stay long - I told Mother I'd fill her pitcher -
She's waiting -

(speaking rapidly, excitedly, impulsive)
Nola - we haven't much time - listen,
I want to marry you - in Natchez tomorrow.

But Mother -

She's going to be in Fayette all morning -
she told me so herself - there's a lovely
little church in Natchez -

But Father - what will he say?
