A SONG FOR YOU
Gram Parsons


Oh, my land is like a wild goose

Wanders all around everywhere

Trembles and it shakes till every tree is loose

It rolls the meadows and it rolls the nails

So take me down to your dance floor

And I won't mind the people when they stare

Paint a different color on your front door

And tomorrow we will still be there

Jesus built a ship to sing a song to

It sails the rivers and it sails the tide

Some of my friends don't know who they belong to

Some can't get a single thing to work inside

So take me down to your dance floor

And I won't mind the people when they stare

Paint a different color on your front door

And tomorrow we will still be there


SOLO


I loved you every day and now I'm leaving

And I can see the sorrow in your eyes

I hope you know a lot more than you're believing

Just so the sun don't hurt you when you cry

Oh, take me down to your dance floor

I won't mind the people when they stare

Paint a different color on your front door

And tomorrow we may still be there

And tomorrow we may still be there
