Nanci Griffith - The Flyer lyrics

The Flyer by Nanci Griffith


He was a flyer for the Air Force
On a plane from San Antonio
I was traveling to London
He was going off to Buffalo
Changing planes in Pittsburgh
We got grounded in a storm
Now, I would give anything
To be on that flyer's arm
We played cards, mostly blackjack
As we sat out on the tarmac
We sang songs we knew in Spanish
As we both loved songs of language
He'd heard me on the radio
I'd seen the flyers on San Antone
Now, I would give anything
To have that flyer for my own
God bless the flyer
Who would be flying home tonight
I would give anything
To see that flyer, flyin' tonight
He said he'd never married
Cuz, his heart was in the clouds
And I said I was too clumsy
That I broke the wings of the loves I found
He shouted out his name to me
As I ran to make my flight
Now, I would give anything
To see that flyer, flyin' tonight
One year I watched a war in London
In the airport leaving London
And I wondered if I'd know him
If I saw his wings in motion
Did I leave my heart in Pittsburgh...
In the lightening of that flight?
I wish that you could tell me now
Will he be flyin' home tonight?
God bless the flyer
Who would be flying home tonight
I would give anything
To see that flyer, flyin' tonight
God bless the flyer
Who would be flying home tonight
I would give anything
To see that flyer, flyin' tonight
