From the recording VIII
I’ve been hiding here behind the eight ball
Wondering who’s calling on the telephone
Scratching off a ticket, hoping for a windfall
Bill collector’s got an ominous tone
I keep thinking that someday maybe
My ship will come in and my wishes come true
In the meantime it’s driving me crazy
I wonder now - what about you?
Oh well – All right
Doesn’t matter anyway
Like Scarlett said in Gone With the Wind
“Tomorrow is another day”
Tell me, what’s that on the horizon
Peace in the valley or calm before the storm?
All I know is when I sit by the fire
Lord help me, I used to feel warm
When you were a child do you remember
Running through the green fields back then?
Hey little child, where did you run to
And do you think you could get there again?
