Lyrics & Tabs

Ichabod And Abraham
« back
He put on his shirt carefully
Makin sure that the buttons matched up
His sleeves were always too short
But at least it meant he could always see his watch

And often he'd check the time
And it would be stopped
He always thought it was broken
But then he'd remember that he had to wind it

Ohh ohh ohh

Though he knew someday
He'd remember to wind it
And it would't work after all
Maybe that would happen
On the exact day
He didn't think it was broken
    Chorus:
    Isn't that the way it works
    Isn't that the way it goes
    Why the fox he lurks
    Why the rooster crows

    Isn't that the way things are
    The way the world ain't flat
    You can only run so far
    Before you make it back

He coul drink from the sink
By cranning his head so far to one side
The day he figured that out
One of the horses died

It was one of the twins
They'd barely a week been alive
It was the one that could barely stand
We'd wrapped his legs with gauze and bandages from inside
From one of the kitchen drawers

We called him Stretch
'Cause he was so skinny and tall
Momma said both twins rarely live with horses
We was lucky to have one living at all

Me and my momma slept in the stall next to them in the bed of the pick up
All us kids pilled in, mmmmhhmm
I remember the mamma horse licking
And cleaning up her newborn babies

She was workin' so hard
She was workin' so hard
She was workin' so hard
She was workin' so hard
She was workin' so hard
She was workin' so hard, hmm
    Chorus:
    Isn't that the way it works
    Isn't that the way it goes
    Why the fox he lurks
    Why the rooster crows

    Isn't that the way things are
    The way the world ain't flat
    You can only run so far
    Before you make it back

You can only run so far
You can only run so far
Before you make it
Before you make it back
