Wouldn't you like to be free?
He proceeded to the cupboard holding the mouse in his teeth
I was just about to sit a while and have something to eat
Even fiery dragons get lonely occasionally
Please do step inside

When the morning sun came up
I crawled into her bed.
The tears in her eyes were fallin’
I could feel no sorrow for the cruel thing I said
In my drunken state I did not care at all

She said sailor, sailor tell me will you ever change your ways
Oh do not take me through this stormy weather
I can feel your sorrow you have seen your better days
Ah but I could not have loved you any better
No I could not have loved you any better.

Amber shades of red slashed through the night
And light the bed where I suppose I will lie alone a while until her cryins’ done
I cannot explain why I cannot feel the pain.
I’ve grown unfeeling I suppose
I’ve grown unfeeling I suppose

Oh sailor, sailor tell me will you ever change your ways
Please do not take me through this stormy weather
I can see your sorrow you have known your better days
But I could not have loved you any better
You know I could not have loved you any better.

To the sad-eyed misinterpreted hung-up child of clay
So the drunken poet’s pretty words didn’t help you find your way
Was it your mistake for thinkin’ he was born before his time
Or was it his for thinkin’ he might save you with his flimsy rhyme

“T” Total Tommy took a toke of tea
Black cat’s backin’ up a big oak tree
Tick tock’s tickin’ out of tune on time
Last word’s lookin’ for a line to rhyme
Saw fish’s swimmin’ in the sea-saw-sea
But me…well I’m only lookin’

I see so many with no place tonight their sleepy heads to lay
With pen in hand I take a stand I got nothin’ deep to say
Some words are better left to whisper only to the wind
Some men kill with bullets Lord, others use a pen

Sidewalk singin’ of a troubled time
Small talk marchin’ to a nursery rhyme
Day tripper trippin’ on a mornin’ high
Stop watch watchin’ for a chance to die
Bad dog’s barkin’ up a an empty tree
But me…but I’m only cryin’

Oh I wish I was a willow tree
Layin’ on a lazy breeze
Movin’ like a midnight train through rainy Georgia

Oh I wish I was a grain of sand
Layin’ in a baby’s hand
Fallin’ like a diamond chain into the ocean

A willow tree is strong enough to bend
Never like the oak that lives in fear of the wind
A grain of sand is all I want to be
Lay me down and let the water wash right over me

Wish I was an old guitar
Sittin’ in a beat up car
Hittin’ every two bit bar from here to Texas
Oh I wouldn’t be ashamed to look up my old friends
They would be so proud to see me strung up again

A grain of sand is all I want to be
Lay me down and let the water wash right over me

Nobody wants you when you’re down and out
Nobody wants to know your name
You’re just another face lost in the crowded street

I can sing

one

I can keep

You’re not my same sweet baby lady
You’re not the same sweet baby I knew
The world is all wrong girl but I’m not the man
That can change it for you
I will be packing my bags and be silently gone

What’s the good in pretending and watching it drag on and on
No the good is in ending it while there is time left
To say your mind is your own

You’re not my same sweet baby lady
The bright lights lady have taken the baby from you
Girl I’m not saying I have no regrets
And the hard times won’t break me too
Oh let me pack my bags and be silently gone

What’s the good in pretending and watchin’ it drag on and on
No the good is in ending it while there is time left
To say your mind is your own

You’re not my same sweet baby lady
I am not sayin’ I haven’t done some changin’ too
Please stop your cryin’ no no I ain’t tryin’
To lay all the blame off on you
Let me finish this packing and be silently gone

If you ever get to Houston look me down
If you ever get to Houston look me down
If you find the memory that turns your thoughts around
And drops you off in Houston look me down

Cincinnati is a long way from here
And it gets a little farther with each year
If I had a dollar bill for every two bit lounge
That I’ve been in I would not be here now
If you ever get to Houston look me down
If you ever get to Houston look me down

If you find the road back home that turns your thoughts around
And drops you off in Houston look me down

Well just one more song and the lights go out
Someone just dropped a nickel in my mouth
I’ll be dead asleep in back of Richard’s North Side Lounge
If you ever get to Houston look me down

If you ever get to Houston look me down
If you ever get to Houston look me down
If you find the memory that turns your thoughts around
And drops you off in Houston look me down

If you ever get to Houston look me down
If you ever get to Houston look me down

Why should I feel discouraged
Why should the shadows come
Why should my heart be lonely
Longing for heaven and home

Jesus is my portion
My constant friend is He
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

I sing because I'm happy
Sing because I'm free
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

Tell that robin at my window
Not to sing to me no song
It is not the time for singin’
But a time to be alone

Chase that sunshine from my window
Tell him to pack up the dawn
Let those sad guitars keep strummin’
Oh it looks like I’m alone

Wake me when it’s over
When it’s over I’ll go home
But for now leave me sleepin’
It looks like baby’s gone

My it’s been a long long time
Funny things I have treasured in my mind
Are like the closin’ of a door
It don’t matter anymore

All the friends I thought I knew
They dwindle down now to precious few
Feel like an aging L.A. whore
It don’t matter anymore

Takin’ it in watchin’ a willow freely
Bend in the wind turning so ever slowly
Into the end honey don’t no one know me
Not the way you do

Oh it’s been a long long time
Funny things how you could always read my mind
Turn out the lights and close the door
It don’t matter anymore

Oh my daddy was a sailor
A sailor just like me
His wife was like my mother
His love the silver sea

Just another sailor
Off to find the world
Just another sailor
All his cloth unfurled

Singin’ la-dn-da-dn-deyo
The water is deep and wide
The ship went down the captain drowned
Do no good to cry

Turnin’ at the gangplank he looked me in the eye
He said learn to read the truth son it lies between these lines
I never met a stranger ‘til I knowed him for a time
I would rather have one penny than all the silver in the brine

Say you double-headed eagle
Say you can teach me how to fly
Tell me then where I could I go
But up into the sky
But up into the sky

My daddy was a sailor
The salt is in my blood
Here I am in Nashville town
Bow-deep in the mud

Singin’ la-dn-da-dn-deyo
Am I too far out to sea
Do I sink with him or swim with them
Across this briny deep

Susie’s in the kitchen doin’ dishes
Chris and all his toys have gone to bed
Starin’ out the window all I wish is
I could hear the words I’m hearin’ in my head
I could hear the words I’m hearin’ in my head
