Tony Rice — Urge For Going lyrics

Well, I woke up today and found
The frost perched on the town
It hovered in a frozen sky, it gobbled summer down
And when the sun turns traitor cold
And shivering trees are standing in a naked row

I get the urge for going
And I never seem to go

And I get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is a turning brown
Summertime is a falling down
Winter is closing in

I had a woman in summertime with summer-colored skin
And not another man in town my darling's heart could win
And when the leaves fell tumbling down
And bully winds dig up their faces in the snow

She got the urge for going
And I had to let her go

And she got the urge for going
When the meadow grass was a turning brown
Summertime was a falling down
Winter was closing in

And the warriors of winter gave a cold triumphant shout
All that stays is dying and all that lives is gettin' out
See the geese in chevron flight
Flapping and racing on before the snow

They got the urge for going
And they got the wings to go

And they get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is a turning brown
Summertime is a falling down
Winter is closing in

And I'll ply the fire with kindling
And pull the blankets to my chin
I'll lock the vagrant winter out and bolt my wandering in
I'd like to call back summertime
And let her stay for just another month or so

She's got the urge for going
And I have to let her go

And she gets the urge for going
When the meadow grass is a turning brown
All her empire's falling down
Winter's closing in

And I get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is a turning brown
Summertime is a falling down
