lyrics

Ballad of a Tinman
By Cam Ewart

I’m an emotional wreck, I cry at the drop of rain.
I know I’m hollow inside this skin of tin, but I love you all the same.
And I’ll follow you today, wherever you need to go,
Through poppy fields we’ll go til you get home
Through poppy fields we’ll go til you get home

Dorothy, lay your head where my heart should be
I know I love you, though you don’t love me, but I understand.
Dorothy, lay your head where my heart should be,
And forever I will be your tinman.

The road is long and paved of solid gold.
But gold it don’t mean nothing if you never get old.
And I know you’ll leave me someday, cos they all do.
But I’m glad I met this little girl in blue.
So glad I met this little girl in blue.

Dorothy, lay your head where my heart should be
I know I love you, though you don’t love me, but I understand.
Dorothy, lay your head where my heart should be,
And forever I will be your tinman.

I wish I had you to myself.
Lets ditch the scaredy cat and the old straw bag, and go on by ourselves.
But you girls are all the same,
Falling for the guy without a brain, again and again,
And I don’t know how much more of this I can take.

Dorothy, lay your head where my heart should be
I know I love you, though you don’t love me, but I understand.
Dorothy, lay your head where my heart should be,
And forever I will be your tinman.
