One Paper Kid (Clark Guy)

Cowboys and Indians and trees he could climb Tomorrow came too fast but he didn't mind Ah, the distance was short so light it again It don't take no time to get where I am But the one paper kid wasn't really so mean He's just a little bit scared and a little bit green And he'd heard of a place that was legal to dream So he sat with his coffee and a blue Texas wind And wrote on the rock "the one paper kid, he's rollin' again" The driver was drunk or he just didn't see The future was there: it'll happen to me And all the time that he wasted was his once again It never takes too long to go where you've been There's broken hearts scattered all over the past And old bad memories tryin' to last Whiskey and women and growing up fast Fussin' and lovin' and itchin' like grass Hell, the one paper kid wasn't really so mean Just a little bit weird 'cause the times were so lean Now he's gone to a place where it's legal to dream No camels, no coffee, no cold morning wind And it's writ on the rock "the one paper kid, he's rollin' again The one paper kid, he's rollin' again
