Lyrics

Ride the blue wind high and fire
She'll lead you down through misery
Leave you low come time to go
Alone and Low as low can be
If I had a nickel I'd find a game
If I won a dollar I'd make it rain
If it rained an ocean I'd drink it dry
And lay me down dissatisfied
It's legs to walk and thoughts to fly
Eyes to laugh and lips to cry
A restless tongue to classify
All born to grow and grown to die
So tall my baby I said so long
Tell my mother I did no wrong
Tell my brother to watch his own
& Tell my friends to mourn me none
I'm chained upon the face of time
Feeling full of foolish rhyme
There ain't no dark till someone shines
I'm bound to leave the dark behind
Ride teh blue wind high & free
Shell'll lead you down through misery
Leave you low come time to go
ALONE AND LOW AS LOW CAN BE
