  1. Make A Wish

From the recording Make A Wish


It’s peaceful here under this trestle Except for the rumble of a long freight train I wish I were on it...going somewhere Instead of nowhere where remain
Here comes Gomez with a candle He hands me a dirty old burlap sack He said it’s a gift for you my friend A little something that a hobo shouldn’t lack
Happy birthday...blow out this candle Make a wish...make one for me too When you bed down tonight and gaze up at the stars Make a wish that wishes can come true
We passed the bottle and traded stories Of how the twisted road let us down again We drank to a new day, stoked up the fire But our desire was fueled by the gin
I reached in that sack, pulled out a Bible And another bottle for us to share Gomez said keep the faith bro... Ya know it wouldn’t hurt to say a prayer
