Somewhere Along The Way...


Well, I woke up Sunday morning
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt.
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad,
So I had one more for dessert.
Then I fumbled through my closet for my clothes
And found my cleanest dirty shirt.
Then I washed my face and combed my hair
And stumbled down the stairs to meet the day.

I'd smoked my brain the night before
On cigarettes and songs I'd been picking.
Then I lit my first and watched a small kid
Cussin' at a can that he was kicking.
Then I crossed the empty street
And caught the Sunday smell of someone frying chicken.
And it took me back to something that I'd lost
Somehow, somewhere along the way.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
Wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
There ain't nothing short a' dying
Half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.

In the park I saw a daddy
With a laughing little girl that he was swinging.
And I stopped beside a Sunday school
And listened to the songs they were singing.
Then I headed back for home,
And somewhere far away a lonesome bell was ringing,
And it echoed through the canyon
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
Wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes your body feel alone.
There ain't nothing short a' dying
Half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.

Well Good Morning to you too! Thanks for sharing that beautiful sunrise! Man, I wish I could wake up to an awesome sight like that - you are really quite fortunate.
As for the song - one of my all time favorites! There's nothing like a Sunday morning comin' down - I like that line "sleeping city sidewalk" - it was a winner for Kris K. anyway.
Keep on blogging - you are good!

Thanks for the comments...

I like my view too :) Wasn't a bad pic for a cellphone camera, but I might need a better camera if I want to get the detail right. There was more red than you can see in the pic. Nice to look at either way though...
