SOMEBODYS DADDY
Daniel Dean Darst
Broadcast Music Inc. 

Well – you can see him anywhere you go 
Layin where the concretes cold
An you wonder if he always looked that way

An you wonder where he’ll go to die
An how he eats to stay alive 
An how he keeps him warm when it’s cold

Don’t you know your lookin at somebody’s Daddy
Or at the least he is his mothers son
A hundred years ago he was a hero
Born when he was needed by someone 

His way of life had reason and a meanin
And the world had a place for restless men 
But now he’s like a ship in a bottle 
His soul is hungry for a gentle wind

Now the railroad ties he’s walked across 
Like monuments to men who lost
An laid their souls beneath the runnin rails

To haunt the ones who follow them
They all become restless men
Who never know the meaning of of a home

Somebodys Daddy Unemployed man surviving on the streets

WESTERN FLYER
Daniel Dean Darst
Broadcast Music Inc. 

In the burnin heat of the desert sun
The sidewinder wind an the roadrunner run
A dirt road cross the highway by the railroad track

Come two hunnerd thirty five hard pullin horses
Eighteen wheel rollin out of Las Cruces
L-A bound in the fast lane – fannin the fire
Come Jimmy Coyote drivin the western flyer

Now sittin up there along side of the road
Straddlin a pinto come Buffalo Joe
Watchin an east bound freight train crossin the highway
 
An the western flyer never slowed up none
An Jimmy Coyote-he was blinded by the sun
An the crash in the desert came screamin through a ball of fire
An Jimmy coyote went down in the Western Flyer
 
An the Western flyer was gone in a flash
An the Phoenix rose up out of the crash on the highway 
An flew into the sun on wings of gold
An the spirit song
Of Buffalo Joe
