UNDER THESE CLOUDS
Patty Griffin


She says I deserve much better than this

It's getting pretty plain to see

She tells her boss,"here's my butt,

Why don't you give it a kiss-

You got all you're gonna get outta me"

Twenty years ago with time in a glass

Graduation day to pave the way

Nothing to show but a life moving too fast

And a fear of almost everything

And a fear of almost everything


But they say get down under these clouds

I was born down under these clouds

So I stand up and sing it out loud

Someone's still alive under their shroud

And I don't wanna die

Under these clouds


Her momma tried real hard not to pass it along

And so her Momma did for that

Somewhere, some day,

Someone'll sing this song

And how everything good goes back

And it really was a gradual thing

Passes easy as a cigarette

You wake up one day wrapped in a ball of string

Believing nothing good's happened to you yet

Feel like nothing good's happened to you yet


But they say get down under these clouds

I was born down under these clouds

So I stand up and sing it out loud

Someone's still alive under their shroud

And I don't wanna die

Under these clouds
