Christopher Cross – Deputy Dan lyrics

Deputy Dan

Just another pure heart
A wide open mind
Driftin' like a cork on a sea of dreams
Playin' the school boy
Makin' believe
Dyin' to fill the shoes
The really big shoos for the tv screams

Standing on the sidelines when I was a kid
Talkin' bout the heroes and the war
Living on the frontlines wasn't quite the same
Something deep inside of me had changed

Dedicated upstart entourage
In the garage
Four crazy Juveniles
Burnin' up the midnight miles
The gigs
The juke box guinea pigs
Spending our prime
Hey man
Honkey-tonk women just one more time


Took a ride on the wild wind
And lost myself an old friend'
Don't ask me now if I'd do it again
