TAKE IT WITH ME
Patty Griffin


Phone's off the hook

No one knows where we are

It's a long time since I

Drank champagne

The ocean is blue

As blue as your eyes

I'm gonna take it with me

When I go


Old long since gone

Now way back when

We lived in Coney Island

Ain't no good thing

Ever dies

I'm gonna take it with me

When I go


Far far away a train

Whistle blows

Wherever you're goin'

Wherever you've been

Waving good bye at the end

Of the day

You're up and you're over

And you're far away


Always for you, and

Forever yours

It felt just like the old days

We fell asleep on Beaula's porch

I'm gonna take it with me

When I go


All broken down by

The side of the road

I was never more alive or

Alone

I've worn the faces off

All the cards

I'm gonna take it with me

When I go


Children are playing

At the end of the day

Strangers are singing

On our lawn

It's got to be more

Than flesh and bone

All that you're loved

Is all you own


In a land there's a town

And in that town there's

A house

And in that house

There's a woman

And in that woman

There's a heart I love

I'm gonna take it

With me when I go

I'm gonna take it

With me when I go
