The Cape (Guy Clark)

Eight years old with a flour sack cape
Tied all around his neck
He climbed up on the garage
He's figurin' what the heck


Well, he screwed up his courage up so tight
That the whole thing come unwound
He got a runnin' start and bless his heart
He's headed for the ground


Well (yes) he's one of those who knows that life
Is just a leap of faith
Spread your arms and hold your breath
And always trust your cape


Well, he licked his finger and he checked the wind
It's gonna be do or die
He wasn't scared of nothin' boys
He was pretty sure he could fly


All these years the people said
He was actin' like a kid
He did not know he could not fly
So he did
