turning the century lyrics – dr. dog

turning the century

i been singing for so long
i go from door to door
but it ain’t the song i’m singing for
i’ve painted every town
the colors i ignore
no it ain’t the change i’m looking for

mouth of the river, spit out the sea
shake the hands of time
turning the century

i been fishing off the dock
every beach and every brook
and it felt the same without the hook
i been humbled by the maker
i been given all i gave
and i don’t expect, no i ain’t asking to be saved

i found the combination, i’ve got the key
standing at the door
turning the century
mouth of the river, spit out the sea
stand for something more
uncommon courtesy
