HERE WE ARE

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  I see us in another town
                 in another state,
                 with heat in every room
                 and food on our plates,
                 paper to draw on,
                 a few good books to read,
                 not a life o' leisure,
                 only what we need:
                 a magic road that leads afar.
                 there we are, there we are.

            II.  now the quarter moon is rising
                 in the darkness on the Nile.
                 when you see the crescent sideways,
                 it really is a smile.
                 the moon is over Austin,
                 it's over Tennessee,
                 they see it in Australia,
                 it's over you and me,
                 a magic lantern from afar.
                 here we are, here we are.

      CHORUS A:  here we are, here we are.
                 ooooh----

           III.  now the moving van is leaving,
                 symbol of my fall from grace.
                 you think you will be happy
                 in another place.
                 but when you're worse off than ever
                 with your stupid, wealthy beau,
                 I'll resist temptations
                 to say I told you so.
                 you can't leave old blues behind
                 when it's in your mind, in your mind.

      CHORUS B:  now here I am, and there you are.
                 ooooh----
