I'd rather take the long way home I'd rather getlost on the side walk the wind blew so hard lastnight where do the duck go in the winter time puton my hate and get out of here this is the firsttime in twenty years I've waited forever it'salmost here I'll still be dancing when it allcomes down I run through the fields hope to becaught on the other side all your kings lined upin the back row the wind blew so hard past yourwindow.

    General CommentI was just wondering.. did they leave the L out in Caufield on purpose.. because in Catcher in the Rye.. his name was Holden CauLfield.

    General Commentgreat book, great band, great song ... but 'WakeMeInNovember' is right, my last name is Caulfield too, and there is an "L" in between the "u" and the "f"...but whatever i don't care that mch it is still an awesome song
