Way Down
John Prine
Way down
Way down it must be
I can't stop this misery
It must be way down

Spring is just a smile away
Laughing at a summer day
Turn around
Look at fall
Winter, hear my lonely call
Way down ...

The air is thin
And the sky is fat
I'm gonna buy me a brand new hat
Wear it out
And go insane
Christ, I hope it never rains
Way down ...

Thought I saw
A neon sign
Flash my name
With the time
Probably didn't
See a thing
Crazy dreams
And a broken wing
Way down ...

How ya gonna
Get sunshine
Peeking thru
Venetian blinds
Don't you know
All that fear
Begins and ends
The same place
Way down ?
