Lyrics

The Catcher In The Rye

Drew James © 2013

 

Father, Oh father

The soldiers lie in wait

Sharpened hooks

Are buried in their bait

You kept trying

To drop them one by one

But reinforcements

Have you on the run

 

One for the road

Make it two for the pain

Three for the memories

And four for the blame

There's no way

You can say goodbye

Goodbye to the Catcher in the Rye

 

Father, Oh father

You say war is hell

That winners are losers

With stories they can't tell

There's a badge of

Courage in your head

Every night it

Bleeds a deeper red

 

One for the road

Make it two for the pain

Three for the memories

And four for the blame

There's no way

You can say goodbye

Goodbye to the Catcher in the Rye

 

Father, Oh father

Drink that whiskey in

It will never

Wash away your sins

You say you need it

To face the enemy

And when you look in the mirror

That is who you see

 

One for the road

Make it two for the pain

Three for the memories

And four for the blame

There's no way

You can say goodbye

Goodbye to the Catcher in the Rye

Goodbye to the Catcher in the Rye
