  • Lyrics: Well the Amtrak rattled on out of Syracuse She said: you seem to be tight - should I call your masseuse? I said thanks anyway but she don’t work on Mondays Maybe we can talk for a while or listen to the wheels click off the miles Well a mother read to her son from the New York Times That Harry the Fog was regretting a few of his crimes Diamonds trickled through his fingers and into a Seventh Avenue sidewalk grate “Oh well I guess it is my fate,” he sighed. A guy on a cell said his wife had a change of heart she saw her life and the script and the cue card She went to the hills & came back lookin’ beautiful Whatever she did see where she went - It is still a mystery to us all. Well the liar is the lookout for the thief Desire’s the booking agent of belief That’s what she wrote On the back of an envelope The night was full of stars and people driving in their cars below

About Paul Grady

Been writing songs for many years. Had a few recorded including "Another Pot O' Tea" (Anne Murray, Emmylou Harris). Play at church on Sunday and the occasional coffeehouse, It's a joy...
