Words and music by Arlo Guthrie

Friends I used to know are coming by
To ask me if my situation's high
'Cause sometimes I just stare at the sky
Up is down before Her crown I cry

CHORUS:
If you would just drop by sometime
If you would just drop by
If you can possible make it up sometime
I can be there if I try

The world world keeps spinnin' me 'round
Bringing me up and bringing me down
But I can't get there with my feet on the ground
Maybe I oughta start digging a hole around my feet on the ground

CHORUS

You know once in while as I sit and stare
I get the feeling that there's no one there
Look at me now as I roll off my chair
How did I know that a chair could be out where I stare?

CHORUS
