All that I have is this dull paring knife
Peeling potatoes the rest of my life
Dirt floors make dust so I hope for the best
I carry candles with pains in my chest

Face tied together with three-times-used string,
Follow me see what I mean

Fixing a fencepost or feeding a cow
Twopenny saltlick I never ask how
Animals like me though, folks turn away
I like the pigeons, I like what they say

We come alone and leave alone
And we look the horse in mouth
We scratch the skin and break the bone
And see birds migrating south

[Chorus]
By the side of the stump where she told me these things
If you hear a bell ring you get some wings
Don't bother looking for what I've neglected to bring
By the side of the stump where she told me these things
If you hear a bell ring you get some wings
She's fallen farther than feathers that float in the wind

I saw a wishing well down by the stream
I never understood what wishes mean
Just ask for nothing you'll get what you get
I asked for something I've not got it yet

[Chorus]
