PANAMA

Lazy roads in my eye
Down in Panama
Under a hat of straw
Before the war
My heart was sore
Making movies

Cloudy day sun was grey
And the set could be
Some old memories
Of you and me
'Love used to be
Down in Panama

You were the general
Who called for my surrender
Director crying child and pretender
On a dark adobe streets
where melodies dicretely wander
Through the night

Danger sea mysteriously
Oh it cast a spell
That only tears will tell
When its the end
Alone again
Down in Panama

Freighters steam their
Fevered dreams
The plot was strong
But the cast was wrong
We wrote this song
And now its gone
Down in Panama

You were the general
Who called for my surrender
Director crying child and pretender
On a dark adobe streets
Where melodies discretely
Wander through the night

This song was written at 1419 LeClair street in 1976
Pittsburgh. A sequel to the song MEXICO maybe.
Townes Van Zandt heard them booth and said he
did that  sometimes, wrote in similar themes. It is
the best song co-author Doug Miles and I ever wrote.
