Mickey Newbury - "We Only Live Once In Awhile" lyrics

We Only Live Once In Awhile

We only live once in awhile
So lets live for today we're alive
Between the first step and the last mile
We only live in awhile

The hobos taken the last slow train home
Bluebirds finished her singing and gone
My lady and me will be up for the dawn
You only live once in awhile
Yes we only live once in awhile
So lets live for today we're alive
Between the first tear and the last smile
We only live once in awhile

See the willow how she catches the wind
Following me down the road round the bend
Over the years shes taught me friends
That we only live once in awhile

Yes we only live once in awhile
So lets live for today we're alive
Bewteen the first step and the last smile
We only live once in awhile
