Go Folks, Go

This song is by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and The Cairo Gang and appears on the album The Wonder Show of the World (2010).

I'm not leaving, I ain't going... you never asked me to
So I'll sit and smile here with you, like I never thought I'd do
Wash the walls and paint the windows, polish face and shave the shoe
I got gal and I got friends, like I never thought I'd do
I never thought the sun would rise in the east and set in west
I figured I owned just dark skies and that darkness fit me best
Here I is, all thin and balled-up, wrapped up in a coat of you
I ain't hemmed-in, I ain't walled-up
I am free and I'm loving you
I can snooze and I can amble
I can jump when you say boo
Freedom is a hard-won gamble, so is holding things like you
My chest swells and my nose snores, it's all okay by you
I've never felt this welcome before... I'd a never thunk, would you?
Serves one right
No need to think
It will all be laid before us, and God will guide us to our graves, smiling, singing
Go folks! Go forth! Go folks!
Trust your brain! Trust your body!
