Would you love me
If I told you I was born upstream
If I told you I come from money
White money
Would you love me
Would you love me

Well, I was born down
By a bad little river in a poor town
Where an indian-giver put a board out
It said “Boarding House”
Call him Scarecrow
He kept whores around

And I’d go there
I’d wait my turn on the broke stairs
And get me the girl with the gold hair
Aw yeah, leave your clothes there
On the folding chair

In that cold room
Your breath would twist just like ghosts do
You said, “Call me Dorothy in red shoes”
And the bed moved
The bed moved
The bed moved

Tracy, don’t you wake that scarecrow tonight

Well, the man would come in
It’s hard living right giving head when
The sad days of winter have set in
And the medicine for an addict is heroin

I’d find you there in the bath
We’d cook up your shit in a tin can
And you started calling me Tin Man
And we started making plans to begin again
Begin again

You saved a C note
Told me you felt like a seagull
Told me to meet at the depot
With the needle, then maybe we’d go
To Reno

Where you’d be my desert dove
And we’d find a way to make better love
Said, “Baby, that’s how the West was won”
And the blood-red sun
Yeah, the blood-red sun
And the blood-red sun

Tracy, don’t you wake that scarecrow tonight

Well, the man cries,
“Who gives a damn when a tramp dies?”
But I loved you there in the lamp light
With your bare thighs
And the halo of your hair alive

And all my lifelong
I’ll never shake off your siren song
And all of your talk about dying young
With an iron lung and that crazy way

You said, “Simon,
I think I might stay here with Scarecrow tonight
Simon, I think I’m gonna stay here with Scarecrow tonight.”

The whole southern California, San Antonio’s burning. Uh LA’s all covered in smoke and everything, I don’t know man i guess you’re experiencing tonight. I was just wondering if you were aware of that fact. There’s a serious, serious fire going on over there. Thousands of homes being burnt up. Fucking Nuts. Uh anyway I know you’re busy uh, just call when you get the chance and how you’re making out.

Love you to hear from you bro, love you, bye.

Take this bread, if you need a friend
‘Cause I’m alright if you’re alright
I ain’t got a lot, but all I got
You’re welcome to it
‘Cause I’m alright if you’re alright

My neighbor Odetta
Came over to see if I was feeling better
Every morning at 8 through the backyard gate
And of all the pretty things she would bring
There was nothing like that song she sang
That could ease my sorry state
She’d sing to me:

Take this bread, if you need a friend
‘Cause I’m alright, if you’re alright
I ain’t got a lot, but all I got
You’re welcome to it
‘Cause I’m alright if you’re alright

Sha na na na na na
lalalalalala la

Whoa! Take this bread.
Sure thing, If I got bread you got bread
And everybody in my company has got bread
You look a little hungry
I ain’t even that hungry, that’s how I look at it
Butter side up, butter side down
Doesn’t matter to me
If you got a slice, that’s nice.

I went for a walk, headlights in the dark
The man was dying in a pick-up truck
He took her from the wall, my parking lot
And killed her by the river
But the cops caught him in the guns

And I said to him..
Take this bread, if you need a friend
‘Cause I’m alright, if you’re alright
I ain’t got a lot, but all I got
You’re welcome to it
‘Cause I’m alright if you’re alright

Take this bread, if you need a friend
‘Cause I’m alright if you’re alright
I ain’t got a lot, but all I got
You’re welcome to it
‘Cause I’m alright if you’re alright
I’m alright if you’re alright
