Artist's Notes

Light turns red, she starts to walk.
It?s green before she gets across.
The cars wait. What can they do?
It?s the only time they see her.
Walks like someone going nowhere
And lots of time to get there.
Lots of time to get there.
But she?ll get there.

Chorus:
And she can?t understand
How it all slipped out
Like coins from her hand.
She stops to count,
She stops to see,
Makes sure she still has three.
Three coins, now that?s all she needs.
One for luck and two for the Boatman.
You?re gonna need two for the Boatman.
Two for the Boatman.

Verse 2:
Slap shot wind, she starts to cough,
And reflex makes the sign of the cross,
A sign to a God she once knew.
A God who wouldn?t know her
If He passed her on the street.
I guess one day they?re gonna meet.
One day they?re gonna meet.
Yeah, she?ll get there.

Chorus:
And she can?t understand
How it all slipped out
Like coins from her hand.
She stops to count,
She stops to see
She makes sure she still has three.
Three coins, now that?s all she needs.
One for luck and two for the Boatman.
You need two for the Boatman.
Two for the Boatman.

Bridge:
And it?s a cold, cold world.
No place for boys and girls
Who are brave enough
Who are unlucky enough
To live way past their time.
The minutes left, they shine like dimes.
They?re yours, but you can?t keep ?em.
Spend ?em, you can?t keep ?em.
Just make sure you still have three.

Chorus:
No one can understand
How it all slips out
Like coins from your hand.
So stop to count,
Yeah, stop and see
Just make sure you still have three.
Three coins, now that?s all you need.
One for luck and two for the Boatman.
You need two for the Boatman.
Two for the Boatman.
