Lyrics



Take off your hat, kick off your shoes

I know you ain't goin' anywhere

Run 'round the town singin' your blues

I know you ain't goin' anywhere


You've always been a good friend of mine

But you're always sayin' "Farewell"

And the only time that you're satisfied

Is with your feet in the wishing well


Throw down your gun, you might shoot yourself

Or is that what you're tryin' to do?

Put up a fight you believe to be right

And someday the sun will shine through


You've always got something to hide

Something you just can't tell

And the only time that you're satisfied

Is with your feet in the wishing well


But I know what you're wishing for

Love in a peaceful world

Love in a peaceful world

Love in a peaceful world


You have always been a good friend of mine

But you're always sayin' "Farewell"

And the only time that you're satisfied

Is with your feet in the wishing well


Yes

I wish you well

I wish you well

Everybody has a wish

Everybody has a dream

I wish you well
