lyrics

The El Cid at sunset, the alley out back
Playing the Barn Dance with the great Ronnie Mack
Carmelita cries for her man
From the Pioneer Chicken Stand
And the guitar goes off in your hand like a bomb
The strings are on fire and singing along
If you tried you couldn't hit a bad note
As you're playing the song you just wrote

If there ever was a question what you were meant to be
Right now you're right where you're supposed to be

If God adores angels and summertime fools
He's lovin' that naked girl there in the pool
Who's so far out of your reach
'Til she's kissing you down on the beach
And her mouth tastes like cloves and her hair smells like smoke
You get her a drink and she gets all your jokes
Your feet tangle out towards the tide
'Til she finally invites you inside

If there ever was a question what you were meant to be
Right now you're right where you're supposed to be

It's that one final crack in the Grand Coulee Dam
That raises the water to rail
And rolls on, roll on Columbia, roll on forever
As you slowly turn into the vacuums you sell
Return like a bird to that old wishing well
Where skin, knuckles and bone were traded for feathers

And you could fly, you would fly
To right where you're supposed to be
