(Jim Webb)
Willie we've been constant companion
You know the light and shade
We have spent a million dollars
Find out what we made.
We have made the maidens marvel
The things we do and say
Down, down and out brother
Up, up in the way.
If you see me gettin' smaller
I'm leavin' don't be free there
Just got to get away from here
If you see me gettin' smaller
don't worry and no hurry
I've got the right to disappear.
God bless old Philadelphia
They were standing in the rain
Out in front of a main yard
Wet and lonely train.
Who knows who they came to see
A mad man full of beer
A four piece band and a charter bus
may further line career.
If you see me gettin' smaller
I'm leavin' don't be free there
Just got to get away from here
If you see me gettin' smaller
don't worry and no hurry
I've got the right to disappear...
