Lyrics

IT COMES AND IT GOES
V1
Pre-Army Elvis told us
Baby don’t be cruel
While cooling off in Memphis
In a guitar swimming pool

With lackeys to the left
Lackeys to the right
No one seemed to hear
Him screaming in the night

Baby said last Tuesday
Trying to explain
There’s something to be said
For remaining just the same

Well the past is just a story
The future speculation
The present is a constant
At least by reputation

Chorus
Oh
Don’t you ever forget
(Everyone knows)
Oh
You better watch your step
(That’s How It Goes)

V2
Well I now yes I know
While there’re some things we don’t know
Some folks will appear
But in time they got to go

I ain’t talking ‘bout the end
The Chapel of the Chimes
Just talking ‘bout the facts
But don’t pay me any mind

Give a man a nickel
Give a man a dime
Give a man a job
Pay him for his time

And when no time is left
Old and out of sight
No one seems to hear him
Screaming in the night

Chorus

Bridge
I don’t have any answers and the questions are just driving me nuts
And if you even mention then they ratchet up the tension and their only explanation is “because”

V3
Farmer hates the drought
Doctor hates disease
I just hate the haters
Now what does that make me?

Baby says she’s tired
Tired of the fight
I never seem to hear
Her screaming in the night

Maybe head up north
Live in Walla Walla
Maybe join a band
Tour in Guatemala

Gigging in cantinas
For a bunch of drunken fools
Singing like we mean it
Baby don’t be cruel

Chorus
