lyrics

There was rain on the porch swing 
and rain on my boots 
and the hood to my jacket was drawn 
when I saw you come skipping 
your way up the street, 
you were smiling, I'm soldiering on. 

You gave me a carving 
you found on the road 
and you gave me a jar full of sand 
from a beach far off somewhere 
that I'll never see. 
I was here and I gave you my hand. 

I was a braggart, you were a rogue: 
the best two this town's ever seen. 
I was a drinker, and you liked to smoke 
but between us we kept our souls clean. 

There was sun on the water 
and sun on your skin, 
the evening came on as I strummed. 
Your hair caught the last light, 
your eyes caught the stars, 
you voice caught the tune while I hummed. 

You gave me a kiss 
and loaned me your heart 
and took me down into your bed. 
I left town the next day 
crossing fingers for you, 
you crossed me right off your list instead. 

I was a braggart, you were a rogue: 
the best two this town's ever seen. 
I was a drinker, and you liked to smoke 
but between us we kept our souls clean. 

There was dirt in the phone line 
and under my nails 
when the fighting and sighing was through. 
You had ice in your veins and 
stones in your eyes. 
I was out cold and dreaming of you. 

You gave me some heartbreak, 
I gave you some too 
when the Spring came and you were withdrawn. 
I was always so faithful, 
'least when you were around, 
you were crying, I'm soldiering on. 

You played the liar, and I played the fool: 
the best two this town's ever seen. 
Once or twice we forgot we were on the same side, 
but between us we kept our souls clean. 

There was rain on the porch swing 
and rain on my boots 
and the hood to my jacket was drawn 
when I saw you come skipping 
your way up the street, 
you were smiling, I'm soldiering on.

I loved you, yes I loved you
On, I loved you, yes I loved you
On, my darling, you were my only one
