Kris Kristofferson — Gettin' By, High And Strange lyrics

New York City was a stich in time when I stood all I could of LA
Patchin' up the pieces of my tangled mind diggin' somethin' different every day yeah
Soon as I was better I was movin' on gettin' it together gettin' good and gone
And by (gettin' by) high (good and high) and strange (gonna get some strange)
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/kris-kristofferson-gettin-by-high-and-strange-lyrics.html ]
New ain't nothin' but a state of mind
Keeps a man from missin' what he left behind
I'll take anything that I can find anyhow anywhere anyway anytime
I'll keep livin' till the day I die as long as I can get it up for one more try
Gettin' by (gettin' by) high (good and high) and strange (gonna get some strange)

[ guitar ]
New ain't nothin' but a state of mind...
(Gettin' by good and high) and strange (gonna get some strange)
