lyrics

EASY COME EASY GO

Well I got my list of things to do but you're always on my mind
There're stoplights on the boulevard, yeah I'm good at wasting time
I've wrestled with the God of love and I know he's on our side
Easy come, easy go, but darlin' we'll be fine

A quarter tank of gas and seven dollars in my hand
I guess I'll buy some cigarettes and walk wherever I can
My payday came a month too late, now I'm a skinnier man
Easy come, easy go, yeah that's the law of the land

Well I heard that life's too short to sit around deciding what to do
But I wonder if those people ever find out what is true
A dime is like a nickel but it's smaller and times two
Easy come, easy go, and I'd spend them all on you

Now everyone's concerned with how they're going to shrivel and die
I've faith enough to laugh and sing and courage not to cry
I may have fouled up girl but at least I did not lie
Easy come, easy go, but it's foolish not to try

If time is friends with death I'm gonna rob him just the same
And torture him till he agrees to tell me his real name
I'm sick and tired of playing his old usual cruel game
Easy come, easy go, yeah that's the devil's way

So say a prayer and send me luck and bid me a farewell
I promise not to buy, girl will you promise not to sell
I may or may not see you soon, it's too early to tell
Easy come, easy go, I hope that you are well

about

Patrick Norton San Diego, California

I, Patrick Norton, write songs and play them for people in San Diego, CA. Folks say my story-telling tunes are at once nostalgic and relatable. But it feels weird to say that about myself. Who writes their own bio anyway? When not making music happen, I'm usually fooling around with old cameras, record players, rusty typewriters, and dusty books, while drinking coffee or other craft beverages. ... more
