Rest My Bones
©2001 Corey Parkman

A new day is shining across the railyard
I slice my breakfast with a beer bottle shard
A tin of sardines and a pack of saltines
with a Coke can of water from an artesian spring

A lifetime of heartache has taken its toll
If love is salvation, then Iím a lost soul
I dream unconcerned with the passage of time
and live for the next breath while daylight is mine

(Chorus)
I ainít a rambler
I just lift up my feet
Hold onto my spot
while earth spins underneath
When I reach the place
that my soul is called home
Oh Lord, thatís where
Iím gonna rest my bones

Yesterday was Phoenix, tomorrow Tucson
Always dreamt of the west when I was young
So Iím chasiní the sunsets and seeiní the sights
And Iíll sleep Ďneath the trestle, come the moonlight

I ainít a rambler
I just lift up my feet
Hold onto my spot
while earth spins underneath
When I reach the place
that my soul is called home
Oh Lord, thatís where
Iím gonna rest my bones
