I don't pursue things 

Things pursue me

I think what I think

I see what I see

It was the bottom of the barrel

I saw it on TV 

It was the bottom of the barrel

for all the world to see


 The back of the hand

comes quickly these days

The writing on the wall

and believe it or not I can read that scroll


French-cut kisses

And mismatched dishes

I hear you are worried about me

My friend


A fever is burning

In cities far away

Whipping posts and southern ghosts

On the boulevard today


I read the words 

that go on forever

Hateful people yapping their jaw

They think theyre clever


The barbecue is ready

what leg do you stand on?


The clouds are moving in

The storm will be here soon

Youre going to get wet, Yourere going to get wet

Donât know where Yourere going, donn'tt know where You've been


When I was a kid, I was a kid

When I did what I did, I did what I did

When I fucked it up I hit the road

I begged

I borrowed

I sold


I won't let it get me down

I am not a clown

I don't prescribe

to the ordinary dive


There were those French-cut kisses

Mismatched dishes

I hear you are worried about me

My friend


Turn the radio on

It plays your favorite song

It took some time for all to see

the fatal flaw, but finally

its your call


Overcast this morning 

neighbor's blue roof

Iced coffee from yesterday

On the TV, John Wilkes Booth


Past, present and future

Cradle to the grave


When I was a child

the sky was burning blue

Some prayed for rain, tornadoes came

Swept up the likes of me and you


I grabbed your legs

A nylon with a run

But those were not your legs

You weren't the only one


Nothings far away

When it happened in the past

Run that engine lean

You gotta make it last, gotta make it last


I remember those French-cut kisses

Mismatched dishesI hear you are worried about me

My friend

French-cut kisses

Mismatched dishes

I hear you are worried about me

My friend
