"Rex's Blues" as written by and Townes Van Zandt....
Ride the blue wind high and free
She'll lead you down through misery
And leave you low, come time to go
Alone and low as low can be
And if I had a nickel I'd find a game
And if I won a dollar I'd make it rain
And if it rained an ocean I'd drink it dry
And lay me down dissatisfied
It's legs to walk and thoughts to fly
Eyes to laugh and lips to cry
A restless tongue to classify
All born to grow and grown to die
So tell my baby I said so long
Tell my mother I did no wrong
Tell my brother to watch his own
And tell my friends to mourn me none
I'm chained upon the face of time
Feeling full of foolish rhyme
There ain't no dark till something shines
I'm bound to leave the dark behind
Ride the blue wind high and free
She'll lead you down through misery
And leave you low, come time to go
Alone and low as low can be
