Lyrics
I Wouldn’t Let You Down
©2008 Ken Bewick
First there was a big house, then there was a boulevard
Sat five in a row one day dreaming of parking cars
The mountains reached the sky-high moon and shot it down with wings
How can I look you in the eye when I haven’t yet learned to sing
Then there was a fire, next came a ramblin’ flood
Took the parked cars under the sea and then came a river of mud
Well the mountains scraped the heavens raw and lost their caps in spring
How can I look you in the eye when I haven’t even learned to sing

Will the mountains tell the story of my days
Let the moon sing a song of our troubles tonight
The freeways vibrate in delight
Us poor folks here all walking around
I’m still confused, I wouldn’t let you down

Please won’t you let me come over now, it’s hard to come alone
Sat five in a row my boys dreaming of a telephone
Well the mountains rained in winter snow and stifled all my dreams
How can I look you in the eye when you haven’t even heard me sing
Next came the medicine tray, a doctor in his gown
Made a mint on the money I’d spent then he went back underground
The mountains shook in my storybook and that screwed up everything
How can I look you in the eye when you haven’t even heard me sing
Will the mountains tell the story of my days
Let the moon sing her song of our troubles tonight
The freeways vibrate in delight
Us poor folks here all walking around
I’m so confused, I wouldn’t let you down
