Ready As I'll Never Be - Tanya Tucker Lyrics

Tanya Tucker CHORDS

Ready As I'll Never Be

I felt you calling, I saw you start
From the old town movies to the bars on the boulevard
The bells were ringing, for a gypsy soul
Straight to the smart mouth little girl from seminal
All you outlaws, and the Opry queens
They wrapped those golden arms around the baby of the family
To stand beside you then was more than enough
I always was and always will be looking up

So gather around him
It's time to sing
It's bittersweet, but it's a hell of a silver lining
I tell the same ol' stories
Ya'll get your wings
And I get better every time I kiss a weather cheek
And watch them doves fly
Sooner than me
I guess I'm ready or ready as I'll never be

The snow don't fall on the Willcox
And the whippoorwill don't lie
Are the two things you can count on
And if you blink, you're gonna miss it twice
Even if I saw it coming
Even if I wanted to
You're just going to the one place left
That I can't follow you

So gather around them
It's time to sing
It's bittersweet, but it's a hell of a silver lining
I tell the same ol' stories
Ya'll get your wings
And I get better every time that I don't know

Ain't no death to repay
Even if you're light years away
May the circle be unbroken
Let it breathe through you
So one sweet day (Day)
Whoa, happy days

Gather around now
It's time to sing
It's bittersweet, but it's a hell of a silver lining
I tell the same ol' stories
Ya'll get your wings
And I'll get better every time I kiss a weather cheek

And watch them doves fly sooner than me
I guess I'm ready, or ready as I'll never be
I'm ready as I'll never be
