Lyrics

When I get this feelin'
I can almost hear
the words that my mother said to me
this time last year

She said "my only son,
my only son,
I gave you a heart like a well
but if you want water you gotta go get some."

My faithful Datsun Bluebird
is buried on the prairie
I took a train and I walked in the rain
Just to watch you get married

Maybe someday I will
I will figure out
Why a man would go to the end of the earth
for a woman he cannot love

Come on there's a new moon out tonight
So let's shoot the old one down
Let's shoot the old one down
Let's shoot the old one down

When I get this lonesome
I can almost hear
The words that my father said to me
this time last year

He said "my only son,
my only son,
I gave you a heart like a river
I gave you a heart like a river
but it'll drown everything if you don't let it run."

Come on there's a new moon out tonight
So let's shoot the old one down
Let's shoot the old one down
Let's shoot the old one down
