      About "One Paper Kid"

      Lyrics for Guy Clark - "One Paper Kid"

      Cowboys and Indians and trees he could climb
      Tomorrow came too fast but he didn't mind
      Ah, the distance was short so light it again
      It don't take no time to get where I am

      But the one paper kid wasn't really so mean
      He's just a little bit scared and a little bit green
      And he'd heard of a place that was legal to dream
      So he sat with his coffee and a blue Texas wind
      And wrote on the rock "the one paper kid, he's rollin' again"

      The driver was drunk or he just didn't see
      The future was there: it'll happen to me
      And all the time that he wasted was his once again
      It never takes too long to go where you've been

      There's broken hearts scattered all over the past
      And old bad memories tryin' to last
      Whiskey and women and growing up fast
      Fussin' and lovin' and itchin' like grass

      Hell, the one paper kid wasn't really so mean
      Just a little bit weird 'cause the times were so lean
      Now he's gone to a place where it's legal to dream
      No camels, no coffee, no cold morning wind
      And it's writ on the rock "the one paper kid, he's rollin' again
      The one paper kid, he's rollin' again
