Another Guy Clark Tune!


Six years old with a flour sack cape
tied all around his neck
he climbed up on the garage
he's figurin what the heck

screwed his courage up so tight
that the whole thing come unwound
took a runnin start and bless his heart
he headed for the ground

Well he's one of those who knows that life
is just a leap of faith
just spread your arms and hold your breath
and always trust your cape

Now he's all growed up with a flour sack cape
tied all around his dreams
he's full of piss and vinegar
he's bustin at the seams

He wets his finger and checks the wind
it's gonna be do or die
he aint scared of nothin boys
he's pretty sure he could fly

Well he's one of those who knows that life
is just a leap of faith
just spread your arms and hold your breath
and always trust your cape

Now he's old and gray with a flour sack cape
tied all around his head
he's still jumpin off the garage
and will be till he's dead

All these years the people said
he's actin like a kid
he did not know he could not fly
and so he did

Well he's one of those who knows that life
is just a leap of faith
just spread your arms and hold your breath
and always trust your cape
