lyrics

You can see him make his way
On a bicycle almost every day
Over the hills and through the gears
Of forty seven years

He’s the boy from long ago
In a baseball cap pulled way down low
In jeans and a faded flannel shirt
Flying just above the earth

He’s got reflectors and bells
You can never tell
When you’ll be crushed by thoughtlessness
Or scarred by carelessness

He zooms by the hardware store
He says it don’t hurt no more
They had to let him go
But they told him he was slow

And he’s just rolling
There’s a lot to see
Still In Katie’s roses
In the park and in the sparkling sea

He thinks of his best friend Ray
By the house where he used to stay
And the times they had before
He went and died in the war

They tore down the Home Plate
Where they’d have breakfast on Saturdays
They put up a golden bull
For the rich and the beautiful

The tourists are back for more
And pirates still work the shores
Promising dreams
On the island queen

He turns on to Katie’s street
She would smile so sweet
And stun him with her sparkling eyes
Every time he rode by

And he’s just rolling
There’s a lot to see
Still In Katie’s roses
In the park and in the sparkling sea

He’s the boy from long ago
In a baseball cap pulled way down low
In jeans and a faded flannel shirt
Flying just above the earth

And he’s just rolling
There’s a lot to see
Still In Katie’s roses
In the park and in the sparkling sea
