song title:Ass Out (In the Wind)
date: 2000-11-01
lyrics: 

Verse 1:
I've been travellin' without a companion
and I've been stuck out in the rain
standing athe the corner of Oak and Stanyan
singing a song without a name.
Wandering without a clue and living like a name without a face
wondering just what you knew and wishing that I wasn't always
chasing a dream that I may never live to see
and hanging my ass out in the wind
hanging my ass out in the wind

Verse 2:
After midnight, in the pale moonlight
kicking cans and walking home
Passing memories and ghosts in the twilight
and make believing I was not alone
Wandering the world and finding out that I'm no closer to a dream
Wondering about the world and wishing that I wasn't always
leaving on a road that may never bring me home
and hanging my ass out in the wind
hanging my ass out in the wind

Bridge 1:
I don't care for sweet Virginia
and Carolina ain't my home
Take me back to sunny Northern California
Back to the hills where I was born

Bridge 2:
I don't always know just where I'm going
and I don't always care just where I've been
Take me back to where good things are growing
and don't you leave me hanging my ass out in the wind

Refrain:
hanging my ass out in the wind
hanging my ass out in the wind
hanging my ass out in the cold, and nearly passed out
hanging my ass out in the wind
