FLYING COWBOYS
Rickie Lee Jones


Down there by the river is a man

Whose born is twisted into shapes

Unknown to the wicked and the wise

And he bears the look of an animal

Who's seen things no animal should ever see

He has been driven beyond all towns

And all the systems until now though it is

Long past too far he keeps going


Because it's a desert

Because it's a desert


We come to the river

We'll walk away from all this now

We come to the water

We'll walk away from all this now


She first saw him he was standing in the doorway

Illuminated from behind by a light

Though imaginary posses chased them

To these distant adobes

Standing on the cliffs today

I thought I saw you below

My shadow growing smaller


It's a desert because

Because it's a desert

They'll be asking me about you forever

I guess


We come to the river

We'll walk away from all this now

We come to the water

We'll walk away from all this now


Long coats on the prairie

Lying in the dust

Who can I turn to ?

Who can I trust ?

Were you walking on the water ?

Playing in the sun ?

But the world is turning faster

Than it did when I was young


When I was young

When I was young


Oh, when I was young I was a wild, wild one
