Granite Angels

I’ve got this old Marine Band harmonica

It’s still got Grandpa’s sweet pipe tobacco smell

And it’s getting a little rough around the edges

But, it still plays pretty well

We’re going out where cool waters

Don’t taste like mercury and lead

I’m tired of this old dirty river

and this old rock bed

I count my lucky stars 

Every night and day

For the rarest birds

They always seem to fly away

And it makes my blood run as cold

As granite angels

I used to go to church on Sundays

But, now they all just hurt like Hell

I don’t think I’d ever make it up in Heaven

Maybe time will tell

I used to think that the longer the life

It was only the slower the death

Now, I wish there was some place in the middle

Where we could keep on dreaming
