lyrics

FLY ME DOWN THE RIVER
FLOAT ME THROUGH THE CLOUDS
IF JESUS DON’T DELIVER
I’LL BE COMIN’ RIGHT BACK DOWN
FOR ALL THAT I DONE IN MY LIFE
I KNOW THAT IT SOUNDS SOMETIMES LIKE
I DON’T THINK MUCH OF THRILLS
BUT BELIEVE ME I STILL
HAVE A GOOD TIME

WHEN JUNE WAS JUST AN INFANT
AND I WAS JUST A KID
FOR ALL THAT I WAS MISSING
I DIDN’T NOTICE IT
OPPORTUNITY MAY CALL
BUT SITTING ON MY PORCH IS ALL
THAT I WANT IN MY LIFE
AND I DON’T MIND THE NIGHTS
WHEN I’M LONELY

THEY CALL ME A SITTING STONE
THEY CALL ME A SITTING STONE
AND THE MOSS IT GROWS
ON THESE GRANITE BONES
THEY CALL ME A SITTING STONE

CARMELIZE AND THICKEN
THE SUGAR IN MY STREAM
LET THE IVY KEEP ON GROWIN
UP MY LEGS AND PAST MY KNEES
JUST A POUND OF DIRT IN THE END
TO KEEP IN CHARACTER I’LL DEFEND THAT
I DON’T THINK MUCH OF THRILLS BUT
BELIEVE ME I STILL
HAVE A GOOD TIME
SUCH A GOOD TIME

THEY CALL ME A SITTING STONE
THEY CALL ME A SITTING STONE
AND THE MOSS IT GROWS
ON THESE GRANITE BONES
THEY CALL ME A SITTING STONE

THERE’S A RUMBLIN’ COMIN FROM THE HILLS AGAIN
IT’S THE PLAIN THAT SHREDS THE AIR THROUGH ITS CHURNING LUNGS
THOUGH THE COCKPITS UNMANED THE CABIN TAKES CONCENSUS
WE DON’T NEED NO LANDING STRIP
THAT AIN’T HOW MIRACLES ARE DONE
WE DON’T NEED NO LANDING STRIP
THAT AIN’T HOW MIRACLES ARE DONE

THOUGH IT’S HARD TO SEE ABOVE THE CANOPY
JUST A BATS ARE BLIND I’LL STAY FREE
THE THINNER AIR AIN’T WHAT MY BODY NEEDS
I LIKE THE WARMTH OF HUMIDITY
I’M EASY TO FIND
I’LL BE EASY TO LEAVE
JUST AS I’LL FORGET YOU
YOU’LL FORGET ME
SO GOOD LUCK ON THE KILL
BUT BELIEVE ME I STILL
HAVE A GOOD TIME
SUCH A GOOD TIME
MIGHTY FINE GOOD TIME

THEY CALL ME A SITTING STONE
THEY CALL ME A SITTING STONE
AND THE MOSS IT GROWS
ON THESE GRANITE BONES
THEY CALL ME A SITTING STONE
