as i rise lyrics – the decemberists

i have come a few miles.
i got blisters on my slippered feet
as i rise, as i ri-ise.
california’s ok.
but i think i might stay in the shade
for a while, for a whi-ile.
ladybird, ladybird
you’re the prettiest song i heard
in a while, in a whi-ile.
la di dah, la dah, la di dah dah dah la dah, la la la, la dah dah-ah.
