DADDY'S TUNE - Jackson Browne

    A dirty wind blows through the sky
    And the Autumn leaves cut loose and fly
    Leave me watching
    And wishing I could follow
    Though among the regrets that I can't get by
    There are just one or two
    Unkind things I said to you
    Daddy what was I supposed to do?
    I don't know why it was so hard to talk to you
    I guess my anger pulled me through

    No sooner had I hit the streets
    When I met the fools that a young fool meets
    All in search of truth and bound for glory
    And listening to our own heart beats
    We stood around the drum
    Though it's fainter now
    The older I become
    Living your life day after day
    Soon all your plans and changes
    Either fail or fade away
    Leaving so much still left to say

    But Daddy I want to let you know somehow
    The things you said are so much clearer now
    And I would turn the pages back
    But time will not allow
    The way these days just rip along
    Too fast to last, too vast, too strong

    Somewhere something went wrong
    Or maybe we forgot the song
    Make room for my forty-fives
    Along beside your seventy-eights
    Nothing survives
    But the way we live our lives
