Max Stalling - Mockingbird Lyrics


Well, I should be in Crystal City, with HR drinking coffee
Down at Beeís Golden Bull, absorbing what he offers me
Clinging fast to every word, a scripture for life in immortals terms
A shout able story, spoken in very soft tones.

Thatís alright now Momma, itís just the miles I swear
Please donít stop your letters and your prayers
Thatís alright now Momma, donít you cry for me,
Iím that mockingbird who is singing in your tree

Well I remember the words that Toby said, when we visited the spot where they lay Joel to rest
Out in the rocks and dirt of that brown cemetery,
He said, Iíve dealt with droughts since my very first breath and Iíll be damned if Iíll do it in death
When I die I wanna be buried where the grass is green

Thatís alright now Momma, itís just the miles I swear
Please donít stop your letters and your prayers
Thatís alright now Momma, donít you cry for me,
Iím that mockingbird who is singing in your tree

God Bless me Mary Guadalupe, from your bath-tub shrine
Itís been so long since my last confession, I donít know if weíve time
Maybe if I drive by each day and shout five confessions as I pass each way
In thirty years or so maybe weíll be catching up

Thatís alright now Momma, itís just the miles I swear
I am living off of your letters and your prayers
Donít you toss and turn while napping, your boyís out here trying to make it happen
I just get a little worried sometimes over bigger things

Thatís alright now Momma, donít you weep for me,
Iím that mockingbird who is singing in your tree

Well, I should be in Crystal City

[Thanks to Richard for lyrics]
