Little Grace

The hucksters in Big Smoke
don’t live around here
They drive down from the mountains
appearing sincere
They sell you big condos
a lifestyle for rent
And in no time at all
the money’s all spent
That’s why next ferry south
I’ll be climbing on board
Been almost three years
since the blues band last toured
If Dugger hangs in
the West Coast’s our sand lot
To pay off the bills
and clear up the mind rot

Here’s the plan daughter Grace
my dear little girl
I’ll untangle this world
from your beautiful curls
I’ll deliver high fives
as successes arrive
And comfort your tears
through the forest of fears
Yes, little Grace
I’ll be here all your years

The road from here to your mom’s
used to be true
Now there’s rough spots and potholes
we have to drive through
Despite all of this
there’s a star with your name
And it hangs in my heart
and it’s bright as a flame

I felt flipped like a burger
placed to the side
Now I need chilling not grilling
to bring back my pride
But time on the road
will help wear off the pain
Grace I’ll be home soon
and I’ll see you again

Here’s the plan daughter Grace
my dear little girl
I’ll untangle this world
from your beautiful curls
I’ll deliver high fives
as successes arrive
And comfort your tears
through the forest of fears
Yes, little Grace
I’ll be here all your years

I got comfortable with more
let your mom walk out the door
I got comfortable with free
let her get away from me

Now words play in my head
as I lie here in bed
I got comfortable with free
let her slip away from me

Sometimes you get a break
other times you don’t
Some friends will lend a hand
then there’s those who won’t
Some nights the sky is black
other nights kind of blue
Some days you tow the line
other days they trip you

Here’s the plan daughter Grace
my dear little girl
I’ll untangle this world
from your beautiful curls
I’ll deliver high fives
as successes arrive
And comfort your tears
through the forest of fears
Yes, little Grace
I’ll be here all of your years

I gave up
I let it be
I let her slip away from me
I got comfortable with free
and let her get away from me
