lyrics

I sidled up to a gal at the Lonely Canteen and I told her
"you see my pa was a soldier."
"he won the War of Exposure"
I think she was impressed, so I bought her a drink

I continued with a proud story of my ma and how she fought back
all the savage Indians (engines)
and then started a mission
to evangelize Indians who didn't die

Up in the sky right beneath
The rim of Heaven is my family tree
The branch on top
Its reserved for me
But someday, baby, I think you'll see

We called each other on the phone a few times, and I convinced her to
listen to my stories
but don't look at my money
I'm gonna make it big
I got golden ideas

So I rattled just a few from the top of my head, in fact I never done
much at all...cept
hunt for girls in the hall
family stories to
get me next to you.

Up in the sky right beneath
The rim of Heaven is my family tree
The branch on top
Its reserved for me
But someday, baby, I think you'll see
