The Smokey Life (1975-)
Early version sung four years before its official release in 1979

You know I've never seen your eyes so wide
Your appetite this occupied
With someone else
As if we'd been alone

Now it ain't my style to hold on that tight
Let's be married one more night
I guess it's time, I finally let you go

Oh I recall the scenery started fading
I held you til you learned to walk on air
Don't look down, it's gone, it's faded baby
The Smokey Life is practiced everywhere

Set your little restless heart at ease
The lessons in all of these autumn leaves
Ain't no sense in waiting for the snow
Hurry, hurry, hurry now or you'll be late
There's nothing to investigate

I guess it's time, I finally let you go Oh I recall the scenery started fading
I held you til you learned to walk on air
Don't look down, it's gone, it's faded baby
The Smokey Life is practiced everywhere

Come back when the moment lends
You can look up all my very closest friends

I guess it's time, I finally let you go
