The Highwaymen - Committed To Parkview Lyrics


COMMITTED TO PARKVIEW
Written by: Johnny Cash
Performed by: Johnny Cash & Willie Nelson
Appears on: Highwayman-1985, The Highwayman Collection-2000, et al.

[Cash:]
There's a man across the hall,
Who sits starin' at the floor.
He thinks he's Hank Williams,
Hear him singin' through the door.
There's a girl in 203,
Who stops by to visit me.
And she talks about her songs,
And the star that she should be.
There are lots of special people,
Stayin' in or passin' through.
And for one thing or another,
Committed to Parkview.

[Nelson:]
There's a girl in 307,
Comin' down on thorazine.
And a superstar's ex-drummer,
Tryin' to kick benzedrine.
There's a boy just down below me,
Who's the son of some well-known.
He was brought in by his mother,
'Cause his daddy's always gone.
There's a bum from down on Broadway,
And a few quite well-to-do,
Who have withdrawn from the rat race,
And committed to Parkview.

[Cash:]
There's a girl who cries above me,
Loud enough to wake the dead.
They don't know what she has taken,
That has scrambled up her head.

[Nelson:]
There's a writer and a singer,
Who has tried and tried and tried,
They just brought him in this mornin',
An attempted suicide.

[Both:]
There are those that never made it,
Those that did but now are through.
Some came of their own good chosin',
Some committed to Parkview.

[Nelson:]
They wake us about six-thiry,
Just before the mornin' meal.
While they're takin' blood pressure,
They ask us how we feel.

[Cash:]
And I always say, "Fantastic.
There ain't nothin' wrong with me."

[Nelson:]
And then they give me my injection,
And I go right back to sleep.

[Cash:]
And my days are kind of foggy,

[Both:]
And the nights are dreamy too.
But they're takin' good care of me,
Committed to Parkview.
