"Bag of Bones" as written by Guy Clark and Gary Nicholson....
He said his hip talks to him when it's ready to rain
He's had a little nip and he's feeling no pain
When he gets like this, he feels like talkin
He said he took some shrapnel at the bay of pigs
He lost two fingers on a gulf oil rig
You gotta watch him, or he'll take off walkin
Some folks say he's lost his mind, but he's just running out of time

[Chorus]
He said, this old bag of bones ain't really me
There's a lot more standing here than what you see
He said my back is bending low but my spirits flying free
This old bag of bones ain't really me

He said I live each day like it's my last
Time won't keep, it goes so fast
You better do the best that you can do

He said, life's a tune you whistle in the dark
When you get it right, you get a little spark
And the sun comes up and it all dawns on you

[Chorus]

He said, this old bag of bones ain't really me
There's a lot more standing here than what you see
He said my back is bending low but my spirits flying free
This old bag of bones ain't really me

He said my back is bending low but my spirits flying free
This old bag of bones ain't really me
This old bag of bones ain't really me
