Nanci Griffith lyrics : "The Flyer"

He was a flyer for the Air Force
On a plane from San Antonio
I was traveling to London

He was going off to Buffalo
Changing planes in Pittsburgh
We got grounded in a storm

And, I would give anything
To be on that flyer's arm


We played cards, mostly blackjack
As we sat out on the tarmac
We sang songs we knew in Spanish

As we both loved songs of language
He'd heard me on the radio
I'd seen the flyers of San Antone

And, I would give anything
To have that flyer for my own


[Chorus:]
God bless the flyer
Who would be flying home tonight

Cuz' I would give anything
To see that flyer, flyin' tonight


He said he'd never married
Cuz, his heart was in the clouds
And I said I was too clumsy

That I broke the wings of the loves I found
He shouted out his name to me
As I ran to make my flight

I would give anything
To see that flyer, flyin' tonight


One year I watched a war in London
In the airport leaving London
And I wondered if I'd know him

If I saw his wings in motion
Did I leave my heart in Pittsburgh...
In the lightning of that flight?

I wish that you could tell me now
Will he be flyin' home tonight?


[Chorus 2x]
