Jesus, the missing years

It was raining. It was cold
West Bethlehem was no place for a twelve year old
So he packed his bags and he headed out
said, "I got my second driver, and he's gonna drive her all the way back."
It's a big black pill, so round and round
The driver's call it west coast
Well, the neighborhood bully, he's just one man
His enemies say he's on their land
They got him outnumbered about a million to one
He got no place
happy in my own kind of way

Everybody knows I love her
But her mind is on another
And just look what he's done to her pride
And if she should change
happy in my own kind of way

Everybody knows I love her
But her mind is on another
And just look what he's done to her pride
And if she should change
not on my mind
Saying the words we could never find
Small talk and pride took you from my life forever

I'll never hold the cards again
To win a love so
on June

I went off in '42 to fight those boys and pay my dues
Her wallet picture kept my spirits high
Charley boy died in my arms, he saw Jesus, I saw
pack?
I said, 'I got my second driver an' he's gonna drive her all the way back.'
It's a big black pill, so round an' round
The driver's call it west
to his pride
And if he should change his mind, give up the music and the wine
I'll be standing by to be the next in line

I know his favorite song so
And if you're always honest with yourself son
It covers many of the commandments of God
Pride was another word that my dad lived by
He took pride in each
to death
He took my place

Now I live and breathe in freedom
With each breath of life I take
Loved and forgiven, backed with a living
I'm just a sinner
Like some night bird homeward wingin
He seeks the sheltered nest
Like the sailor's lost horizon,
He needs some place to rest
The songs that he's
He took a river that winds and turns
Took a fire that breathes and burns
And put it all in place
In the most perfect way

[Chorus: x2]

God made
tidings of my son Ted. 
Is the poor boy livin' or is he dead?" 

Now up comes Ted without any legs 
And in their place there were two wooden pegs 
She
long but by the time he got his courage up she was gone 
Then he screamed "Leave me alone, I'm a family man 
And my bark is much worse than my bite"
"This child is my pride and joy"
"I'm busy running wild and free"
"Make sure he grows up like me"
And I'm a vagabond

Blue eyes, oh baby blue, oh
"this child is my pride and joy"
"I'm busy running wild and free"
"make sure he grows up like me"
And I'm a vagabond

Blue eyes, oh baby blue, oh
I am so weak and I'm so tired 
It's hard for me to 
Find enough strength to feed the fires 
That fuel my ego 
And consequently all my pride has
a price

But he said "leave me alone, I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite"
He said "leave me alone, I'm a family man
But if you
And he looks at me in wonder 
And he looks at me in fear 
Wrestling with his anger 
His pride and stony tears 
To place me in his life 
Will be
I come from a place 
Run by a man named Mr. Page
Took everything and he wanted more
Gun and a knife and he used them both

Smack ya in the head
Deep in time a hunt took place
That made a boy a man
A song was sung to celebrate
And welcome each new hand
The story of Shamaya
The song that brings
He took my place
Now I live and breathe in freedom with each breath of life I take
Loved and forgiven
Back with the living
I'm just a sinner saved
the dark
And his true love was slain as the shaft found its mark

She'd her apron wrapped about her and he took her for a swan
But it's oh and alas it
The steps he took were nice and easy.
He never knew he could stumble and go down.
As he saw the buildings and the mountains crumble,
Over the road
