Ordinary Joe Lyrics


by Terry Callier. From Soul Boy (disc 2).


For my openiní line
I might try to indicate my state of mind
or turn you on
or tell you that Iím laughiní
just to keep from cryiní
pretty music, when you hear it,
keep on tryiní to get near it
a little rhythm for your spirit
but thatís what itís for
címon in hereís the door

Iíve seen a sparrow get high
and waste his time in the sky
he thinks itís easy to fly
heís just little bit freer than I

Now hereís a mystery
maybe you can help to make it clear to me
When youíre fast asleep
and than what is thatís lightiní up the dreams you see
all your tears canít conceal it
all your prayers may not reveal it
you got soul so you can feel it
and when you make the scene
then youíll know what I mean

Iíve seen a sparrow get high
and waste his time in the sky
he thinks itís easy to fly
heís just little bit freer than I

Down here on the ground
when you fine folks are giviní you the runarround
keep your game up up-tight
and if you must just take your secrets underground
now, politicians try to speech you
mad color watchers try to teach you
very few will really try to reach you
if youíre lost in the stack
thatís ok come on black

Now I'd be the last to deny
that I'm just an average guy
and don't you know each little bird in the sky
Is just a little bit freer than I

Ordinary Joe, people say youíre just a lazy so and so
what they think is real
is nothing but an animated puppet show

So donít let time and space confuse you
donít let name and form abuse you
let Big Joe Williams blues you
in the light of the sun you can see how they run
