The Cape Lyrics

Artist: Jerry Jeff Walker
Album: Gonzo Stew

Guy Clark

Well he's eight years old he's got a flour sack cape tied all around his neck
He's climbing up on top the garage figurin€™ what the heck
He screws his courage up so darn tight, that the whole thing come unwound
He got a runnin€™ start and bless his heart, he headed for the ground

'Cause he€™s one of those who knows his life
Is just a leap of faith
Gotta' spread your arms and hold your breath
And always trust your cape

Well he's all grown up, he's got a flour sack cape, tied all around his dream
He€™s full of piss and vinegar, ah, he€™s bustin€™ at the seams
He licks his finger and checks the wind, it€™s gonna be do or die
He wasn€™t scared of nothin€™, boys, he was pretty sure he could fly


Now he's old and grey with a flour sack cape, tied all around his head
And he€™s still jumpin€™ off the garage and will be til he€™s dead
All these years the people said the fool was actin€™ like a kid
And since he didn't know he couldn't fly, well of course he did
