Well, the wind blows wild and the trees are flying,
old Scorpio's rising and the sky's on fire.
I strolled down to the water just to watch the boats capsize.
Well, my spirit's high and my stomach's full,
it's good to feel a little gravitational pull.
And I got a woman bound to make my temperature rise.
I been working at the mill since a-way last August.
Hell, it's better than the Gulf Station back in Saugus.
And the weather's been wet, so there's really nothing better to do.
We were living in a trailer, now we got our own place,
it's a half mile off from the whole human race.
And the crop's coming in just before the payment is due.
Whoa - I must say it's been a fine Thanksgiving!
Old Father Time's been smiling on me.
When I hear them old songs I can't keep from singing.
This true love that I've found has turned my world around.
Well, I got an old friend who's a great success
With his name in the paper and his head in a mess.
Spent his youth trying to make the music pay.
Now he wants to be the world's greatest big-time showman,
flashing his stones like a declined Roman.
And I wouldn't trade him if he threw in all the coke in L.A.
