Guy Clark — Be Gone Forever lyrics

Sometimes a loser
Sometimes a hero
This is a lonely captain's story
Sword and a pistol by his side

Chorus

Do Lord oh do remember him
Yes, yes, remember him
There will be a singer
Whenever his time has come to die
Be gone forever

Sometimes an angel
Sometimes unwanted
This is a lonely nurse's story
Watch and a clipboard by her side

Chorus

Sometimes a legend
Sometimes a beggar
This is a lonely hobo's story
Cane and a switchblade by his side

Chorus

Sometimes we're ugly
Not really worth it
This is a lonely planet's story
We're the third one from the sun

Chorus
