Dear friends
You are angels and drunks
You are magi
Old friends

You stuck a pin in the map I was in
And this is a note for a road sign
Cuttin' the breeze in this Tennessee sundown
Came the sounds of the voices I know
I've been pondering trees
On the steeliest come down
But now a moment I'm home

I've got bluster enough
For the sales of a clipper
And the truth never frays a good yarn
But it struck me to say while so far away
You are with me today
You are here are in my head, in my heart

Dear friends
You are angels and drunks
You are magi
Old friends

You stuck a pin in the map I was in
You are the stars I navigate home by
