lyrics

If kitty kills the cardinal
sure it will be bitter
see him red between the trees
His majesty in winter
I'm locked down tight, I'm dead to rights
I can't go on forever
If kitty kills the cardinal
sure it wil be bitter

Waiting around to see him flash
Waiting to hear him sing his name
Waiting around and I don't see nothin
nothing but a cryin shame
oh, a cryin shame

So don't shine too bright a light
down on where I lay tonight
Beauty shines where diamonds line
but it don't shine down in my eyes
If kitty kills the cardinal
I would be good as done
and part of me that I reach for is gone
and in my eyes you can see that I'm thinking of home

Waiting around to see him flash
Waiting to hear him sing his name
Waiting around and I don't see nothin
Nothin' but a cryin shame
oh, a cryin shame
Don't see nothin to explain
why it always works out this way
when I see a way to fly away
hit my head on that clear windowpane
ain't nothin but a cryin shame
oh, cryin shame
