Goodwill Coat mp3 demo

Post by couchgrouch » Tue Dec 13, 2005 7:59 am

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemus ... 31939There were clothes and pans and paintings, all with yellow tags And I found an old Navy peacoat on the clearance rack The collar it was threadbare and it's seems were coming apart But deep in it's pocket, I found an old purple heart I paid my four dollars, then I asked the clerk Who donated that weathered coat, if he knew where they were He handed me an address, said I might find someone there Just touching that sacred medal, I knew I wasn't fit to wear (chorus) That Goodwill coat made of time and wool faded midnight blue, missing a button or twoStill inside, the courage and a soul Like it was sewn in to the lining of that Goodwill coat Well I finally found that sailor at the Desert-view nursing home Trapped inside a wheelchair there was Corpsman William Jones He was staring in the distance in a room with empty walls But his blue eyes started smiling when he looked up and saw That Goodwill coat made of time and wool faded midnight blue, missing a button or twoStill inside, the courage and a soul Like it was sewn in to the lining of that Goodwill coat (bridge) He took that coat and then the medal and felt them with his hands And (he) began to tell me stories of war on distant sands I went back to that thrift store and paid two dollars more For a large oil painting of a western shore I hung it on the wall beside that old sailor's bed So he could sit there watching that ocean view sunset That Goodwill coat made of time and wool faded midnight blue, missing a button or twoStill inside, the courage and a soul Like it was sewn in to the lining of that Goodwill coat (tag) There were clothes and pans and paintings all with yellow tags And I found an old Navy peacoat on the clearance rack George/ Bohn c 2005
