lyrics

Dust off your hat
And throw away your cigarettes

Changing are the ways
That you spend your last dime
Dry your eyes brother I got mine
It seems as though you know
Which way the river flows

Do you only want a pen for your plans
Do you only want a river for your dam

Sweep the floor
And write letters to the ones you love

The coffee's getting cold
And the tobacco that you rolled
Is the music in your music show
But when it's time to go home
Will you change your tune?

Do you only want a pen for your plans
Do you only want a river for your dam

It's raining on the sun
There's flames about the moon
You are one and you are
To see you through
What will you do

Dust off your hat
And throw away your cigarettes
