If You See Me Getting Smaller Lyrics

by Waylon Jennings

Willie, we've been constant companions
You know the light and shade
We have spent a million dollars
Find out what we made

We have made the maidens marvel
The things we do and say
Down, down and out brother
Up, up in the way

If you see me gettin' smaller
I'm leavin', don't be free there
Just got to get away from here
If you see me gettin' smaller
Don't worry and no hurry
I've got the right to disappear

God bless old Philadelphia
They were standing in the rain
Out in front of a main points
Wet and lonely train

Who knows who they came to see
A madman full of beer
A four piece band and a charter bus
My further line career

If you see me gettin' smaller
I'm leavin', don't be free there
Just got to get away from here
If you see me gettin' smaller
Don't worry and no hurry
I've got the right to disappear
