"Swallows of San Juan" as written by and Alejandro Escovedo Charles Prophet....
I gonna crawl upon the shore
Roll in the mud and the clay
Like the swallows of San Juan
I'm gonna get back some day

A thousand steps to the water
A thousand steps you must take
There's a thousand worlds on a head of a pin
A thousand rules to break

Next time you see me
I'm going to smile for the camera
Like some wild man from Pompeii
Take my word
Go down to the sea
It's breaking bigger
Than anything any of us have ever seen

I gonna crawl upon the shore
Roll in the mud and the clay
Like the swallows of San Juan
I'm gonna get back some day

Had a blonde tv special
And an English half Stef
I lost some boats in a deal
But some day, some day
I'll get 'em back

Next time you see me
I'm going to smile for the camera
Like some wild man from Pompeii
Take my word
Go down to the sea
It's breaking bigger
Than anything any of us have ever seen

I gonna crawl upon the shore
Roll in the mud and the clay
Like the swallows of San Juan
I'm gonna get back, get back some day
I'm gonna get back some day
Get back some day
Gonna get back some day
Yeah, some day
Gonna get back some day
Get back
Get back some day
