"Restless" as written by and James Mcmurtry....


She gets a little restless in the spring

She might follow the lines you sing

Bullshit though they are

?Cause sometimes that?s just the thing

If delivered with panache and a certain graceFingertips on satin lace

Cutting cards and quoting Proust

Whatever turns her wild mare loose


She gets a little restless now and then

She feels the changes in the wind

Way down deep where I can?t see

She can get clean away from me

With a side step and subtle shift

And the turning of a key

Locks me out and lets me drift

She?ll come back if I let her be

She?ll come back if I let her be


And I?m just a little down tonight

I?m just a little down

A little messed up is all I?m saying

Just a little down tonightI?m just a little down

But I believe I?ll make it

Believe I?ll make it


She gets a little restless I can tell

When she goes back up inside her shell

And the conversation slows

To a stop and I might as well

Be out alone on the highway

Way off in the Utah sage

Waving to the railroad crew

That?s when I get restless too


She gets a little restless in the spring

She might follow the lines you sing

Bullshit though they are

Sometimes that?s just the thing
