I met you on a midaway at a fair last year
You were playing on the horses

Wearing wings, you looked so grand, wearing wings
Can you fly? I hear you can! Can you fly?
Just like an eagle doin' his hunting from the sky
And I found you in a trailer on the camping grounds

Once or twice, I heard ya did, once or twice
Now you've packed it in, I heard you did, packed it in
Was it hard to fold a hand you knew you could win?
And I'm still at these races with my ticket stubs and my blues

Overtime, I've lost my fire, overtime
'Cause I'm midway down the midway
Slowin' down
