David Gray - Kathleen Lyrics

Lay down my head by the wayside
My worn out shoes
Quite why she went I canÂ’t decide
Yeah but I sure could use
One plate of food steaming and hot
Clean linen ironed
On a fresh made bed but I ainÂ’t got
One salty dime, one salty dime
One salty dime
Just close your eyes it wonÂ’t take long
It wonÂ’t hurt a bit
Telling myself I could be strong
Or some such brave bullshit
Trucks are roaring by IÂ’m a red ghost
In their tail light gleam
IÂ’m a tumbleweed, IÂ’m a spit roast
Just turning in your flame
Oh my darlinÂ’ Kathleen
Cars they sound like waves that are breaking
On some distant shore
I gazed so hard into the great aching sky
It seemed that I, I wasnÂ’t here no more
That my rushing blood was a river
My eyes two stars
My blowing hair all a quiver
A whispering field of grass
That murmurs as you pass
Oh my darlinÂ’ Kathleen
That whispers out your name
Oh my darlinÂ’ Kathleen
Oh my darlinÂ’ Kathleen
