Lookin Glass

There once was a lady
So many years ago
And though she was crazy
Lord but the things she knowed,
She said

There’s sometimes you live in the city
Sometimes you live out on the road
Sometimes the only way you see
Is to help someone carry that load

There once was a lady
So many years ago
And though she was crazy
Lord but the things she knowed
She said

There’s some people call you a wise man
Some people call you a fool
Some people seem to care about
The way that you break the rules

There once was a lady
So many years ago
And though she’s now hazy
Lord but the things I know
She said

There’s sometimes you live in the future
Sometimes you live in the past
Sometimes the only way you see
Is to look in the lookin’ glass
