If You See Me Getting Smaller I'm Leaving

This song is by Jimmy Webb and appears on the album El Mirage (1977).

Willie we've been constant companions
In all the light and shade
We have spent a million dollars
To find out what we made
We have made the maidens marvel
At the things we do and say
Down down and out brother
Up up and away

If you see me gettin' smaller I'm leavin'
Don't be grieving
Just got to get away from here
If you see me gettin' smaller don't worry
I'm in no hurry
I've got the right to disappear

God bless old Philadelphia
They were standing in the rain
Out in front of the Main Point,
A wet and lonely train
Who knows who they came to see
A mad man full of beer
A four piece band and a charter bus
My border-line career
If you see me gettin' smaller...
