Asleep At The Wheel
"The Cape" lyrics

The Cape

Eight years old with a floursack cape
Tied all around his neck
He climbed up on the garage
He's figuring what the heck

He screwed up his courage up so tight
That the whole thing come unwound
He got a running start and bless his heart
He's headed for the ground

He's one of those who knows that life
Is just a leap of faith
Spread your arms and hold your breath
And always trust your cape

All grown up with a floursack cape
Tied all around his dreams
And he's full of spit and vinegar
And he's busting at the seams

He licked his finger
And he checked the wind
It's gonna be do or die
He wasn't scared of nothing boys
He was pretty sure he could fly

He's one of those who knows that life
Is just a leap of faith
Spread your arms and hold your breath
And always trust your cape

Old and gray with a floursack cape
Tied all around his head
He's still jumping off the garage
And will be till he's dead

All these years the people said
He's acting like a kid
He did not know he could not fly
And so he did

He's one of those who knows that life
Is just a leap of faith
Spread your arms and hold your breath
And always trust your cape

He's one of those who knows that life
Is just a leap of faith
Spread your arms and hold your breath
And always trust your cape
