Billy Jim Baker



I never live my life through other people's eyes

I guess I've always been the one they said was

Too tall, too late, too early

Yeah, he's the one

You ought to be in the circus

You're having too much fun



Just a one-man band, a one man gypsy circus

Finding out each piece of the puzzle has a purpose

Drifting and dreaming

Yeah, that must be my fate

Always grinning down the devil's throat

Blazing with aces and eights



And I was contrary to ordinary

Even as a child

Fast freights made me wonder

The full moon still drives me wild

And stories do come true

You just got to live your life in episodes

With one eye on a lady

And one eye still on that open road



And when I die don't put no tombstone on my grave

Just have my friends throw a great big party

Toss my ashes out across the waves

Don't bring no preacher man down

Just to tighten up my past

Just tell 'em how I like to live

I like to make sing and dance and laugh



And I was contrary to ordinary

Even as a child

Fast freights made me wonder

Full moons still drive me wild

And stories do come true

If you live your life in episodes

With one eye on a lady

And one eye on that open road
