    "Not So Far To Go" Lyrics

    Ginger had dyed her hair red to fit her name
    Burny pocked his arms with a pack of Camel Lights
    Long sleeves outdoors to keep the kids from crying
    And Ginger climbed the high wire just to make them cheer

    Trapeze float in a buttercup parade
    With clowns and plastic parachutes, three red, the same
    Clutched arms and fire dropped in a bar in New York city
    It's not so far to go, oh, it's not so far to go to find trouble

    Bus rattles downstairs, downtown flying
    With a green seat empty and a window cracked
    Sleeping Johnny snores, dreaming oceans and whores
    All the while gluing tile on basement doors

    He's Burny Arms brother, Ginger's other mate
    Oh, it's too late to tap the till, money's gone
    Arm holes and long locks, a house with nothing in it
    Hmm, it's not so far to go to find trouble, ooh
    The Lord, it's not so far to go to find trouble

    Thousand mile handhold might keep the party still
    If the holes heal well and the hair stays red
    We'll climb another roof top and scare the crooks away
    A gypsy and a singer in the bone yard

    Yeah, walking the moonlight, losing the sign
    Oh, sleeping Johnny wakes, doesn't know where he is
    Bus stop in upstate, a bar in New York City
    It's not so far to go, it's not so far to go, Lord, it's not so far
    Yeah, I don't know, it's not so far to go to find trouble, no
