black sheep boy lyrics – okkervil river

here i am back home again
and i’m here to rest
all they ask is where i’ve been
knowing i’ve been west –

i’m the family’s unknown boy
golden curls and envied hair
pretty girls with faces fair
see the shine in the black sheep boy –

if you love me let me live in peace
and please understand
that the black sheep can wear the golden fleece
and hold the winning hand
