He's a poet.
He's a picker.
He's a prophet.
He's a pusher.
He's a pilgrim
and a preacher

He's a walkin' contradiction partly truth and partly fiction
Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line
