"Out My Way" Lyrics

by Derrick Bostrom in


SHE'S HOT She's hot I know / It's good she told me so / It's good she's not / I will she knows / I don't know what my name is / I don't know anything at all / Anything from A to Z / If you remember me at all / She's hot I know / She's hot she told me so / It's good she's not / It's hot she knows / I don't know what my name is / I don't know anything at all / I only know where she is I'll go / If I could read the writing on the wall / This is too much / She's hot and it's so / She is too much / It's good I know / I don't know what my name is / I don't know anything at all / Call me anything from A to Z / I only know I'll answer when you call

OUT MY WAY

Out my way / Days turn days / Days in grace / Out my way / Blue hands face / Good night's lace / Out in storms / Light embrace /Down in its cave / My heart lays / Its own sun / Lights the day

OTHER KINDS OF LOVE

Love is sweeter than honey / Honey is sweeter than wine / Wine is sweeter than tangerines / Tangerines are blind / I know the earth between my feet / I know the skies above / I know that's where the angels meet / To spread unearthly love / Today I walked among them / I could not get enough / They did not even see me / As they did their angel stuff /One takes the staircase / One holds the wheel / One ties the cotton / To the tire maker's heel / Not hard to picture / What I'm thinking of / Many many other kinds of love /Wheel's start a-turnin’ / A lotta turns make rain / Rain swells the river / And the river floods the plain /I know the earth beneath my feet / I know the skies above / That's where the angels meet / To spread unearthly love / Six or seven others / Spilled out on the floor / They begin to multiply / There are hundreds more

NOT SWIMMING GROUND

Six straight rolls in a blindman's game / Half a dozen snake eyes all the same / Holler to an echo / Roll those hollow dice / To the other side / Another time /Got lost on the water / Wound up on the sand / Gaze out through the darkness / With the light in the palm of your hand / To the other side / Another time / I got to say this has nothing to do / With the other side / I'll bet they wish they were round the corner / On some crazy ride /Every time the walls tumble down / Build up the new ones on the changing ground / Works about as well as water in your hand / The new ones are always the tallest ones around / The other side / Another time /You lay out in the water / The light in the palm of your hand / Goes moving through the water / Like the motion of a far off land / To the other side / Another time /Some wins and losses / They hear what they like / Rubbin' toes and burnin' trail / Headin' down the pike / To the other side / Another time

MOUNTAIN LINE

Well the moon was more than we could hope for / We sure know a real good time / Green black box with whatever's inside / Nighttime creeping from behind / We'll take him up to the cottonwood / Show him a real good time / Up in the canyon away from the river / Sure that's the mountain line / Well maybe someday I'll find what I'm after / Drag it away from my mind / Maybe someday I'll find / One more mountain line /Will the blue affect him / Is the night too fine / Eyes that follow steppin' out the river, / Underneath the mountain line / Well I don't throw myself in the water / The fire's burning stronger with the rain / All it took was a little understanding / Before I learned to move with the flame / Maybe someday I'll find what I'm after / And drag it away from the mine / Maybe someday I'll find / One more mountain line
