lifeblood: songs: lyrics: bird in the hand


baby
don't want me hanging out
talking sweet
to the lonely hobos on the street
and baby
don't want me riding the rails
watching the dawn come in
while the prairie breaks and bends
baby
you're not a solitary man
yeah so get it in line
stop your wandering

baby
don't want me sitting by the roadside fires
talking in a quiet way
until the night expires
and baby
don't want me roping up the raft
watching the waterways
like some long lost river rat
baby
you're not a solitary man
yeah so get it in line
stop your wandering
get it in line
you got a bird in the hand
and she's gonna fly
while your wandering

baby
don't want me rolling in to town
selling the lovesick troubador
and the huckleberry hound
and baby
don't want me leaving at the tender hour
oh when the heart beats honestly
and the vine blooms on the bower
baby
you're not a solitary man
yeah so get it in line
stop your wandering
baby
you got a bird in the hand
so get it in line
stop your wandering
