Jonah

ŠPaul Simon, released on One Trick Pony, 1980

.

Half and hour you change your strings and tune up

Sizing the room up

Checking the bar

Local girls' unspoken conversations

Misinformation

Plays the guitar

.

They say Jonah was swallowed by a whale

But I say there's no truth to that tale

I know Jonah

Was swallowed by a song

.

No one lets their dreams be taken lightly

They hold them tightly

Warm against cold

One more year of traveling 'round this circuit

Then you can work it into gold

.

Here's to all the boys who came along

Carrying soft guitars in cardboard cases

All night long

Do you wonder where those boys have gone?

Do you wonder where those boys have gone?
