Hippie from Mississippi
Lyrics
I've been hangin' around
this old town
reading Noam Chamsky and listening to old Greg Brown
I play a sad slow tune
As the sun goes down
Just waiting on the moon
And thinking about you.

I goes days just talking
to a dog named Sly.
We like to go out walking
just Sly and I.
Maybe take a few pictures
with my old Nikon
of the evening sky
as the road winds on

I'm just a middle-aged hippie
from Northern Mississippi
I like to drink a little brew
maybe smoke a little boo
but every time I do
I get to thinkin' about you

I was a little too old
for a woman like you
but you liked rolled gold
and an ice cold brew
swimming bare ass naked
in the water tower
a summertime dreamer
in a sweet spring flower

Was it the perfect meeting
of study and chance
when I saw you there
at the county fair dance?
The unlived life
was my worst fear.
They say when the student is ready
that the teacher will appear.

I'm just a middle-aged hippie
from Northern Mississippi
I like to drink a little brew
maybe smoke a little boo
but every time I do
I get to thinkin' about you

Sometimes late at night
alone in my darkroom
in a tray of solution
I watch the flowers as they bloom
and the one I took
of you beneath the tree
just the way you looked
smiling up at me

A bachelor's house
can be both heaven or hell
and you showed me both
and you taught me well
about here and now
about generosity
about how to let go
of a free spring breeze

I'm just a middle-aged hippie
from Northern Mississippi
I like to drink a little brew
maybe smoke a little boo
but every time I do
I get to thinkin' , thinkin' bout, thinkin' about you
