My son is waiting on me
And he ain't a patient man
Go and get the sheriff
Tell him anything you can
(Just get him here)

Burned myself on this cast iron panhandle
Long before you came
Love was never the subject
(Couldn't talk about my mother to him)

Remember seeing Shirley in the oil fountain?
What a woman dancing!
I just wanted a happy ending
(For your little sister wherever she is)

Don't be so sore just 'cause you lost to your old man
Because none of this is gonna happen to me
Within my lifetime

Aren't you sick to death of the word inheritance?
It's with your great grandparents
You've inherited the wind, fool
I hope you enjoy it

But I'm going out flipping the bird to California--
Keep your melting stars!
I followed all the rules
I wasn't the one who turned the screw so hard

We have a great wanting in common
But none of this is gonna happen to me
Within my lifetime
