lifeblood: songs: lyrics: olympia inn


yeah well me and johnny on the road
seeing rainbows doubled
and looking for a pot o' gold
but for every farm in technicolor green
there's a bruising sky
beneath we're just maggots on the asphalt road
yeah well every place has got its history
and you'd erase it if i'd set you free
yeah but is it worth
another landscaped wasted to just move on
johnny can't we make the best of it
oh
johnny i've sung with pleasure
it's a good life
there is no measure
hey johnny
in the morning
when you wake me
call me darling

yeah she's gonna call me when she's down
just to knock me around
long about michigan
yeah we wander parallel lives and i don't know why
sometimes it hurts just to know she breathes
yeah but johnny she's got what i need
yeah but she's gonna let me bleed
and i'll just be misty-eyed again
at the olympia inn
and adding to that pouring rain
forget it johnny
(forget it johnny)
we were rockin'
(we were rockin')
some kind of crazy scene
i set myself back
(i set myself back)
it's just a land grab
(it's just a land grab)
and i got more than i need
yeah and after all these miles
i'm just a homesick pup
but i crossed this ocean
to give it my best shot

hey
johnny i've sung with pleasure
it's a good life
there is no measure
hey johnny
in the morning
when you wake me
call me darling
hey johnny
in the morning
when you wake me
call me darling
when you wake me
call me darling
