Printer-friendy version of these lyrics


I could shed my skin and in the blink of an eye I could fly fly fly
Tie my dreams up in a sack Lay my head down on the track and die die die
My life's been so sweet I just can't stand it
I must admit I've made out like a bandit

Last night's conversation with a real good friend of mine drinkin wine
wine wine
Said fifty years of livin and your worst mistakes forgiven takes time
time time
One man's lust for life brings world reknown
Next guy can't get two feet off the ground......earthbound

Earthbound....hear the wind through the tops of the trees
Earthbound....summer sun nearly ninety degrees
Earthbound....big ol' moon sinking down...... think I might stick

I knew love once way back when she had almond eyes and olive skin
And long black hair
She was Irish Spanish mixbreed I was southeast Texas hayseed
We were almost there
Her daddy didn't like my kind around
True love took the next train out of town......earthbound

Earthbound....where there's fathers and daughters in pain
Earthbound....mama's boy walking home in the rain a ship run aground I think I might stick around

With each new day that passes I'm in need of thicker glasses but it's
all O K
Someday I'll be leaving but I just can't help believing that it's not
Every golden moment I have found
I've done my best to run right in the ground.....earthbound

Earthbound....see the sky big and beautiful blue
Earthbound....fallen angels are talkin' to you
Earthbound....keepin' close to the ground think I might stick around
Earthbound....Tom Waits, Aretha Franklin, Mary Karr
Earthbound....Walter Cronkite, Seamus Heaney, Ringo Starr
Dalai Lama, Charlie Brown think I might stick around
