Lyrics

Patty’s leaving her childhood home, she got her red dress packed and her bag for the road.

She don’t know where she’s going, but knows she’ll start a life out there.

Her friend Tina is a digger of gold, she married clean cut Jimmy and they’re rollin’ in dough.

But, little Patty’d rather sleep in the cold, she got seeds to sow.

 

Chorus:

I said hey, you’re right, cause good things happen when you free your mind.

Feels good, sounds nice, don’t ever regret, don’t even think twice.

 

Patty’s workin’ at the corner store trying to make that money workin’ seven to four.

She sold everything but her bones, but she’s doing just fine.

Met Patty at the Stop ‘N Go and she told her story and she told it in full.

I sat there and tried to console and this is what I said.

  

(Chorus)

 

I said hey, you’re right, cause good things happen when you free your mind.

Feels good, sounds nice, don’t ever regret, don’t even think twice.

 

I said hey, that’s fine, cause the flower that blooms gonna take its time.

Your heart, it might, stand tall in the face of the dying light.
