Taking A Walk by John Prine


A man came to our house

I believe it was yesterday

I would have invited him in

But i didn't have a lot to say

 

His anticipation

Of me opening the door

Outweighed my apprehension

As it never had before

And drove my concentration

Right through that hardwood floor

 

I'm taking a walk

I'm going outside

I'm taking a walk

I'm just getting by

 

There's a girl in the white house

I don't even know her name

Her disheveled appearance

Speaks volumes of shame

 

It's an embarrassing situation

But a situation just the same

The way she walks on others

And never takes the blame

Upsets my constitution

Beyond its mortal frame

I'm taking a walk

(taking a walk)

I'm going outside

(going outside)

 

I'm watching the birds

(taking a walk)

I'm just getting by

(just getting by)

 

Found a card in the pocket

Of my worn out overalls

From a girl in cedar rapids

Now residing in idaho falls

 

I wish you could've been there

When she opened up the door

And looked me in the face

Like she never did before

I felt about as welcome

As a wal-mart superstore

 

I'm taking a walk

(taking a walk)

I'm going outside

(going outside)

 

I'm taking a walk

(taking a walk)

I don't need a ride

(just getting by)

 

I'm watching the birds

(taking a walk)

Flying so high

(going outside)
