# Will Oldham — Meaulnes lyrics

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way of a half-million murderers

And he came by the way of a long list of ironies

And he came by the way of the road to Sioux City

And he came by the way of the half-breeds and lesbians

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he thought it

Was in there but still wasn't happy,

He knew it was less than the way that it could be

But undaunted unshaven and an eagle in britches he

Set out again to unveil the earth's riches

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that I said I was leaving,

The way that I'd take if I really was going

If I had a map, that is why I'm delaying

And if it wasn't in there I'd surely be staying

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way of a half-million murderers

And he came by the way of a long list of ironies

And he came by the way of the road to Sioux City

And he came by the way of the half-breeds and lesbians

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he thought it

Was in there but still wasn't happy,

He knew it was less than the way that it could be

But undaunted unshaven and an eagle in britches he

Set out again to unveil the earth's riches

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that I said I was leaving,

The way that I'd take if I really was going

If I had a map, that is why I'm delaying

And if it wasn't in there I'd surely be staying

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked

And he came by the way that he walked
