lyrics

down in kentucky
he drew a bird
then took a picture
and sent it to her

on the mississippi
headed down south
didn't earn much money
living hand to mouth

an ocean filled with blue
an army trained to fight
he pursued
just for you

raised by his step mom
in western france
learned to play a few songs
and how to dance

sailed to pennsylvania
and hunted in the wild
an eye for avifauna
became his style

an ocean filled with blue
an army trained to fight
he pursued
just for you

he died a rich man
at age 65
way up in new york city
he's here to stay
he's here to stay
here to stay
