Lily White Rover

I’ve met the Lily White Rover
I remember what he said
"I’ve got a radio playing those oldies
And a guitar that plays in my head"

He is blameless and harmless and like this
He is sweetness and sightless and light
He puts all of his sadness behind him
He doesn’t get up or put up the fight

I knew the Lily White Rover
I heard him play every small town
I saw him drive every smooth highway
He’ll love you until you break down

He is flawless and perfect and lovely
He is human and hurtful and cruel
He knows he sends shivers of longing
And throws on the fire more fuel

I loved the Lily White Rover
I believed in the things that he said
But believing is moving your fingers
While the guitar just plays in your head
