I wish I was a willow tree leaning on a lazy breeze
Moving like a midnight train through rainy Georgia
I wish I was a grain of sand laying in a baby’s hand
Falling like a diamond chain into the ocean

Willow tree is strong enough to bend
Never like the oak that lives in fear of the wind
A grain of sand is all I ever wanted to be
Lay me down and let the water wash over me

I wish I was an old guitar sitting in a beat up car
Hitting every two bit bar from here to texas
I wouldn’t be ashamed to look up my old friends
They’d be so glad to see me strung up again

A grain of sand is all I ever wanted to be
Lay me down and let the water wash over me

Nobody wants you when you’re down and out
Nobody wants to know your name
Just another face lost in the crowded street
Here in the crowded street

I wish I was a willow tree leaning on a lazy breeze
Moving like a midnight train through rainy Georgia
I wish I was a grain of sand laying in a baby’s hand
Falling like a diamond chain into the ocean

Willow tree is strong enough to bend
Never like the oak that lives in fear of the wind
A grain of sand is all I ever wanted to be
Lay me down and let the water wash over me
