Contrary to Ordinary
I never live my life through other people's eyes I guess I've always been the one they said was Too tall, too late, too early Yeah, he's the one You ought to be in the circus You're having too much fun Just a one-man band, a one man gypsy circus Finding out each piece of the puzzle has a purpose Drifting and dreaming Yeah, that must be my fate Always grinning down the devil's throat Blazing with aces and eights And I was contrary to ordinary Even as a child Fast freights made me wonder The full moon still drives me wild And stories do come true You just got to live your life in episodes With one eye on a lady And one eye still on that open road And when I die don't put no tombstone on my grave Just have my friends throw a great big party Toss my ashes out across the waves Don't bring no preacher man down Just to tighten up my past Just tell 'em how I like to live I like to make sing and dance and laugh And I was contrary to ordinary Even as a child Fast freights made me wonder Full moons still drive me wild And stories do come true If you live your life in episodes With one eye on a lady And one eye on that open road
