gene autry

billy jean's got a beautiful voice
he carries me home on his beautiful horse
and when she waits
i will ride ride ride
come on stranger just sing me a song

with what you said
i'll sing a long long long
i told you i knew every word

when i get to california
i'm gonna write my name in the sand
i'm gonna lay this body down and watch the waves roll in
when the sets go out just like the cult vain

everybody drowns
sad and lonely now
everybody drowns
sad and lonely now
everybody drowns
sad and lonely now allright

sweet sweet dreams and colors and sound
highways and the farway to be found
i saw goldminds in the sky sky sky
they were clouds just waiting to cry
with the wind dancing drift drift drift
in the shapes of the place that i miss

when i get to california
i'm gonna write my name in the sand
i'm gonna lay this body down and watch the waves roll in
i'm gonna rest this weary head on someone who i think will care
and when the stars in the sky start falling i think you'll understand
that the sets go out just like the cult vain

everybody drowns
sad and lonely now
everybody drowns
sad and lonely now
everybody drowns
sad and lonely now allright

yeah i'm waiting for something to give
well i'm waiting i hope its not me
yeah i'm waiting for something to give
well i'm waiting i hope its not me
yeah i'm waiting

next track silver lining
