Story

This song features a beautiful, haunting vocal performance by my friend Jennifer Warnes, one of the great singers of our time. Roscoe Beck lends a hand on upright bass. Written for my father, Mark Ryan, and all the other angels watching us.

Lyrics

COME OVER TO MY HOUSE AND SEE MY PAINTINGS
SO YOU CAN KNOW HOW I LOOK AT THINGS
AND WHEN YOU COME OVER BRING A BOTTLE OF WINE
A BOOK OF VERSE AND A SONG TO SING.
DON'T TELL ME NO SILLY LIES STROKE MY EGO OR ASK ME WHY
I WON'T TELL YOU HOW MUCH MONEY I MAKE
HOW MY HEART ACHES OR WHAT CAR I DRIVE.

FATHER OH FATHER I'LL TELL YOU THE TRUTH
THIS MAKING UP STORIES IS HURTING MY HEAD
THERE'S AN ANGEL WITH A GUN, UP ON THE ROOF
IF I KEEP ON TALKING HE'LL SHOOT ME DEAD.

WE'LL GO OUTSIDE AND FEED MY GARDEN
SAY A PRAYER TO THE LIVING AND A PRAYER TO THE DEAD
AND WHEN IT GETS DARK WE'LL SPILL OUR WINE
AND TALK ABOUT THINGS THAT NEVER GET SAID.
YOU CAN TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT THE MOST
KEEP ME FAR OR KEEP ME CLOSE
I WILL TELL YOU THE STORY OF MY LIFE
ABOUT MY FIRST WIFE ON THE IVORY COAST.

FATHER OH FATHER I KNOW I'VE DONE WRONG
MY WILL IS WEAK BUT MY HEART IS STRONG
LOOK INTO MY EYES AND TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE
ANGEL WITH A GUN'S GOT HIS SIGHTS ON ME.

WILL IT MATTER WHEN MY STORY ENDS
WILL IT MATTER WHERE THE RAIN FALLS
I DON'T BELIEVE IN FAIRY TELLS
BUT WILL I HAVE TO ANSWER WHEN THE ANGEL CALLS.
