When I became of age, why my mama sat me down
Said "Son, you're growin' up, it's time you look around"
So I began to notice some things I hadn't seen before
That's what brought me here knockin' on your back door
Oh, yeah

A closet queen, the busstop's dream, she wants to shake my hand
I don't want to be there, she decides she can
It's Apple Dan, he's just the man to pick fruit off your branches
I can't sleep, if he can't keep his cattle off my ranches
Oh, yeah

It's too strong, something's wrong and I guess I lost the feelin'
I don't mind the games you play, but I don't like your dealin'
God looked bad, the luck's been had and there's nothin' left to smoke
Will I be back tomorrow for the punchline of the joke?

    The middle of this song, (cast your fate to the wind), and joe's rendition of "bolero" is just frickin' awesome. 40+ years later, it's still awesome.

    you have a few words wrong...

    Cards look bad, lucks been had and there's nothing left to smoke,
    will i be back tomorrow or the punchline of the joke?

    "for" makes no sense, it's "or"!
    will i be back OR the punchline of the joke, ...get it?
    ...and Gid never looks bad, ...it's the cards!
