D A V I D E S S I G LYRICS: TRACKS FROM "INTO THE LOWERING SKY"
Wake Up Smilin'

1. I got kicked in the head
I got smacked in the brain
I got snow up my nose
But I always try to wake up smilin

2. I got drilled in the arm
I burned down the farm
And I lost all my clothes
But I always try to wake up smilin

When I was a younger man - I had time on my side
My God, you know the things we planned - made me realize

(repeat 1 and 2 )

And now I'm an older man - I've got a dimmer on my brain
My God, you know the things we planned - couldn't take them around again

(repeat 1 and 2)

Slow Section:
I don't want to live no more - I've been knocked off my feet
I'm standing death's door - with my back turned to the street

If I had been a younger man - I could stand the pain
My God, you know the things we planned - I couldn't drag them around again

Even Slower Section:
Lord let me be - your refugee
(repeat ad inf.)
