I'm Gonna Change My Ways

This song is by Peter Case and appears on the album Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John (2007).

Case

One, two, three, four

Well, I started out 'neath the spring
And smoke down a gravel road where the gate was broke
I reached her house, saw the golden glow
The hearthstone fire all lined with coal

I said, I'm gonna change my ways

Couples were dancing by the jukebox light
Cops were out front sipping cokes uptight
She smiled at me, said, ‽Honey, come on in
Sit right here, won't you hold my handâ€

I said, I, I'm gonna change my ways
Yeah, said, I'm gonna change my ways
Oh, I think I'm gonna change my ways
Yeah, I'm gonna change my ways
One of these days, oh yeah, all right

Saw a blackbird fly with red tip wings
Soaring above the penitentiary
In the northern lights but the sky was blind
Confusion sounds for a troubled mind

Said, I'm gonna change my ways
Yeah, I, oh, one of these days
All right, come on now, hey

Yeah, by the rescue mission and the Goodyear blimp
Spied a one arm man walking with a limp
I got another chance then I blew it to bits
I made a new start by calling it quits

I said, I could've changed my ways
Yeah, I said, I'm gonna change my ways
Yeah, said I, oh, one of these days

Yeah, I'm gonna change the way I shuffle the cards
Change the angles I play when I'm crossing the yard
Gonna change my ways, I'm losing control
I'm starting over with a brand new soul

I said, I'm, yeah, change my ways
Yeah, I'm gonna change
Oh, one of these days, one of these days
One of these days, one of these days
