The Cape Lyrics

(Guy Clark/Susanna Clark/Jim Janosky)Eight years old with a floursack capeTied all around his neckHe climbed up on the garageHe's figurin' what the heckWell, he screwed up his courage up so tightThat the whole thing come unwoundHe got a runnin' start and bless his heartHe's headed for the groundWell (yes) he's one of those who knows that lifeIs just a leap of faithSpread your arms and hold your breathAnd always trust your capeNow he's all grown up with a floursack capeTied all around his dreamsAnd he's full of spit and vinegarAnd he's bustin' at the seamsWell, he licked his finger and he checked the windIt's gonna be do or dieHe wasn't scared of nothin' boysHe was pretty sure he could flyWell (yes) he's one of those who knows that lifeIs just a leap of faithSpread your arms and hold your breathAnd always trust your capeNow he's old and gray with a floursack capeTied all around his headHe's still jumpin' off the garageAnd will be till he's deadAll these years the people saidHe was actin' like a kidHe did not know he could not flySo he didWell (yes) he's one of those who knows that lifeIs just a leap of faithSpread your arms and hold your breathAnd always trust your capeWell (yes) he's one of those who knows that lifeIs just a leap of faithSpread your arms and hold your breathAnd always trust your cape
