Terry Allen – Manhattan Bluebird lyrics

Well if you never let
Them tight pants
Have a chance
To hug your hips
Manhattan bluebird
Girl... You never flown

And if you never read
Your name
Carved in leather
With your fingertips
Manhattan bluebird
Girl... You done yourself wrong

And if you never let
That honky tonk
Juke box
Sing for you
Manhattan bluebird
Girl... You missed your song
