​Right Here Now

This song is by James McMurtry and appears on the album Where'd You Hide The Body (1995).

If somebody's calling,
It don't mean a thing
If I don't feel like talking,
I'll just let it ring
I Move along slowly and
I watch my back
And you tell me I'm crazy,
But I don't believe that

No, I'm right here now,
Just a shade off plum
I get that way,
Though it worries you some
Right here now and I know my mind
It won't be long a wandering

I remember a ball game I
Watched as a kid
Neglecting my homework
As I often did
Joe Namath scored on a seven-yard run
His knees barely held him,
But they got the job done
And there'd be no last call if they elected me king
And if you were here with me, I'd tell you these things

But I'm right here now...
Just a shade off plum
I get that way though it worries you some
Right here now and I know my mind
And it won't be long a wandering

Outside it's raining soaking the ground
It started last evening and it's still coming down
I move along slowly and I watch my back
And you tell me I'm crazy, but I don't believe that
No, I'm right here now...
Right here now

There's an old magic eight ball next to my plate
And I ask it a question regarding my fate
It says, "reply hazy, please try again,"
It won't say where I'm going, it don't know where I've been

But I'm right here now, just a shade off plum
I get that way, it worries me none
Right here now and I know my mind
It won't be long a wandering
