Tom Waits Whistle Down The Wind (for Tom Jans) LETRA
I've grew up here all of my life, but i dreamed someday i'd go. where blue eyed girls and red guitars and the naked rivers flow
I'm not all i thought that i'd be! i've always stayed around! i've been as far as mercy and grand frozen to the ground. i can't stay here and i'm scared to leave so kiss me once and then. and i'll go to hell, i might as well be whistlin' down the wind. The bus at the corner, the clock's on the wall, the broken down windmill, there ain't no wind at all. i've yelled and i cursed, if i stay here i'll rust, i'm stuck like a shipwreck out here in the dust. The sky is red and the world is on fire and the corn is taller than me. and the dog is tied to a wagon of rain and the road is wet as the sea. and sometimes the music from a dance will carry across the plains. and the places that i'm dreaming of do they dream only of me? there are places where they never sleep and the circus never ends. So i will take the marley bone coach and be whistling down the wind. So i will take the marley bone coach and be whistling down the wind.
