"Gone Like the Water" as written by and Freedy Johnston....
A red suitcase she'll never miss
Leather coat he used to wear
Thinking tough, looking tired with momma's money and daddy's ring
He's gone like the water down to end
Why's he sleeping on the 802 along this river running down
He's gone like the water down the deep
Cold drain, disappearing in the city

Twenty four and going pale
Growing out, cutting back
Drew a face on a ticket stub
With mamma's hands and daddy's pen
He's gone like the water down to end
Why's he sleeping on the 802 along this river running down
He's gone like the water down the deep
Cold drain, disappearing in the city

Talk all night, cook all day
Looking for a new place to stay
Thinking hard, looking bad
With mamma's dollar and daddy's coat
He's gone like the water down to end
Why's he sleeping on the 802 along this river running down
He's gone like the water down the deep
Cold drain, disappearing in the city
