One Kind Word
words & music © by Geoff Bartley 1997 Published by Joshua Omar's Music BMI All Rights Reserved

I know a man, never says a word
Strums his old Gibson, sings like a bird
Dreams in his head, almost gone
The times keep changin' as the years wear on

And it don't take much to wag my tail
Give me hard-boiled eggs, a little beer in a pail
You've got to work pretty hard to drive me away
But one kind word and I will stay

Driving in my car, travel all around
Get up on a stage, here in your town
I used to chase all the women and I guess I still do
But love is best when it's tender and true

And it don't take much to wag my tail
Give me hard-boiled eggs, a little beer in a pail
You've got to work pretty hard to drive me away
But one kind word and I will stay

Up all night and I sleep all day
People ask me how I live that way
Well I don't call it livin', I call it just gettin' by
If I had the ambition I'd be a hell of a guy

And I'm about half-crazy, at the end of my chain
Nobody knows how I stand the strain
If you treat me hard I might turn mean
I'm at my best when the times get lean

And it don't take much to wag my tail
Give me hard-boiled eggs, a little beer in a pail
You've got to work pretty hard to drive me away
But one kind word and I will stay
