(Jesse Winchester)

Well goodness is it really real
It would take a baby child to know the way I feel
OH my flutter in the blue
I would take the credit but it's thanks to you

Ooh yeah I'm a sinner and
I ain't some beginner
I'll uncork a pint of trouble
Sit down and drink a double
I'm thirsty for somethin' lighter
That'll get me even tighter
And tighter until one day
I think I hear angels play

Well goodness is it really real
It would take a baby child to know the way I feel
On my flutter in the blue
I would take the credit but it's thanks to you

Now someday up in glory
Well I'll weep and tell the story
To someone who will smile and say
You're a mess but you're my child

Goodness is it real
It would take a baby child to know the way I feel
On my flutter in the blue
I would take the credit but it's thanks to you

Now someday up in glory
Well I'll weep and tell the story
To someone who will smile and say
You're a mess but you're my child

Goodness is it real
It would take a baby child to know the way I feel
On my flutter in the blue
I would take the credit but it's thanks to you
