Cape Lyrics

Artist: Guy Clark
Album: Dublin Blues

Eight years old with flour sack cape
Tied all around his neck
He climbed up on the garage
Figurinwhat the heck
He screwed his courage up so tight
The whole thing come unwound
He got a runninstart and bless his heart
He headed for the ground

Chorus

HeÅ  one of those who knows that life
Is just a leap of faith
Spread your arms and hold you breath
Always trust your cape

All grown up with a flour sack cape
Tied all around his dream
HeÅ  full of piss and vinegar
HeÅ  bustinat the seams
He licked his finger and checked the wind
ItÅ  gonna be do or die
He wasnÅ  scared of nothin Boys
He was pretty sure he could fly

Chorus

Old and grey with a flour sack cape
Tied all around his head
HeÅ  still jumpinoff the garage
And will be till heÅ  dead
All these years the people said
HeÅ  actinlike a kid
He did not know he could not fly
So he did

Chorus
