No Wicked Grin

I can see by your tears
With all of the years
You still hear the call of the blue

And I can see by your face
It's a lonely old place
You've gone and gotten into

I've got this smile
I've had for a while
It ain’t exactly brand new

It's no wicked grin
It's good and worn in
And I'd like to give it to you

Through trouble and pain
Through wind and through rain
I think it will fit you just right

When you gave it to me
I couldn't be free
Now I'm standing right here in your light

And when your life's upside down
It might look like a frown
Depends on how you wanna see

So here's lookin’ at you
And when I'm upside down too
It looks like you're smilin' to me

I can see by your tears
With all of the years
You still hear the call of the blue

And I can see by your face
It's a lonely old place
You've gone and gotten into

I've got this smile
I've had for a while
It ain’t exactly brand new

It's no wicked grin
It's good and worn in
And I'd like to give it to you
