Skinny Lou 
You used to be that I couldn't see you sideways
Skinny Lou 
Many times I wish I could be like you
Turn away from the bay in my own ways
Just like you do Skinny Lou
There's a pull I can feel like gravity, grabbing me sideways
I bought a railway station ticket to take me out of this town
Leave me somewhere standing with the rain on my face again and again
Oh, is it true you used to run with constellations
And the rock-a-billy boys will never see
Your artistry of taking your whole world in without taking it all on
Because you know it will be your skinny shoulder it rests upon
Skinny Lou 
I've a mind to sew a tapestry this time
For it feels like gold in the pocket of a coat
It would be easy to forget you ever had
To have it we do, me and you
Oh, is it true you used to run with constellations
And the rock-a-billy boys will never see
Your artistry of taking taking your whole world in without taking it all on
For you know it will be your skinny shoulder it rests upon
Yes you know it will be your skinny shoulders it rests upon
Oh you know it will be your skinny shoulders it rests upon
