lyrics

Just a flaxen headed bride
Silk rustled fields to a car on the roadside
Dust swirled around the rear.
And I figured it was time to get a beer

So if I walked on down the road
Can't say I noticed, can't say I felt alone
Can't say I felt too much
At a late night diner I got quite outta touch

Knew you'd come back when you moved on
Where Jesus and Anias taught you their songs
Where Henry Miller bought you a cheap beret
So thanks for comin' home to let me be the wise man for a day

You flew to the Left Bank with a friend
High on airmail, fold all my love to send
I really didn't have that much to do
Just washin pots here in a kitchen missing you

So at least I guess I finally know
How many miles a love can fly before it goes
But I really want to count them all
Before I take that god damn map off the wall

Knew you'd come back here when you moved on
Where Jesus and Anias taught you all their favorite songs
Where Henry Miller bought you a cheap beret
So thanks for comin' home to let me be a wise man for a day

So the groom was dressed in black
Square dark rim glasses and hair tied in the back
And the preacher said his thing
But from the tall grass I couldn't see the ring.
