Lucky day

by Tom Waits


The prettiest girl
In all the world
Is in a little Spanish town
But I left her for a Bonnie lass
And I told her
I´d see her around
But that Bonnie lass
And her heart of glass
Would not hold a candle

To bumming around
So don´t cry for me
For I´m going away
And I´ll be back some lucky day

Tell the boys back home
I´m doing just fine
I left my troubles and woe
So sing about me
For I can´t come home
I´ve many more miles to go

Why, there´s Miss Kelsey
You taught dance at our school
And old Johnny O´Toole
I´ll still beat you at pool
So don´t cry for me
For I´m going away
And I´ll be back some lucky day

Now when I was a boy
My daddy sat me on his knee
And he told me
He told me many things
And he said sone
There´s a lot of things in this world
You´re gonna have no use for
And when you get blue
And you´ve lost all your dreams
There´s nothin´ like a campfire
And a can of beans

Why, there´s Miss Kelsey
She taught dance at our school
And old Johnny O´Toole
I´ll still beat you at pool
So don´t cry for me
For I´m going away
And I´ll be back some lucky day
