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
