"Brand New Set of Wings" as written by and Joe Purdy....
Mama was callin' but I couldn't answer,
I had a dog in the car had a dog in my hands
And I was walkin' in these worn out shoes
When I tripped over Charlie and I hit the grass,
I was comi'n up runnin' I was comin' up fast
But he beat me I was runnin' for the door
No Sally don't get down, cause I've been lookin' all over town
For a brand new set of wings for you, a brand new set of wings for you

Now I'm back in the house bang my head against the wall,
Yeah Charlie's still laughin' bout watchin' me fall
I say Charlie now whats the big idea
I'm back in my room just packin' my bags
Thinkin' November bout the time that we had just walkin' by the stone walls
No Sally don't get down, cause I've been lookin' all over town
For a brand new set of wings for you, for a brand new set of wings for you
Yeah for you

Oh I'm gonna go get a ticket
Gonna get on a plane
Tell that pilot take me so far away
So I can call you up and say I miss you like a fool
Yeah but you don't put me down you don't treat me bad
Say I understand about the problems I have
But sometimes I know you still wonder
Sally don't get down, cause I've been lookin' all over town
For a brand new set of wings for you, for a brand new set of wings for you
Yeah for you

Yeah got held up in Paris caught smoking on a train
If you ain't got your papers gonna get you detained
Don't believe me I got the photographs to prove it
And you should have seen the look on the old mans face
When the police threatened to haul him away
You know he was so scared, it was also kinda funny
Sally don't get down, cause I've been lookin all over town
For a brand new set of wings for you, a brand new set of wings for you
Yeah for you

And I cant sleep at night cant wake in the day
Got these guitars that got so much to say
But no time or energy to say it
Yeah we can still walk in the park there aint nobody there
There's a calm in the trees and a cool in there air
Its warm but I found it kind of soothing
In a couple of months when the leaves turn green
When the seasons change when the bird sings
I'm gonna grab you up and I'm taking you for good
Yes and we'll walk by the river most every single day
And we'll eat our dinner where the tourists play
Yeah the city's old but it never seems to get tired
No Sally don't get down, cause I've been lookin' all over town
For a brand new set of wings for you, for a brand new set of wings for you
