I Know I'll Be OK

Lyrics: Midnight North
Music: Midnight North

Sung by Alex Jordan with Midnight North with Phil Lesh guesting on bass in June 2014 and with Phil Lesh and the Terrapin All-Stars in August 2014.

Well my boots are in need of some mending
And my pockets are lined only with lint
Well my hair is uncombed
And my beard's overgrown
I know I'll be OK
Oh, I know I'll be OK

And my mother, she taught me all my manners
She also taught me how to curse
So when life's got you on your knees
Do you swear or say please
I know I'll be OK
Oh, I know I'll be OK

And my car barely made it to the station
To catch a train that almost left on time
I left my ticket on my dash
But the conductor never passed
So I know I'll be OK
Oh, I know I'll be OK

I'm singing la la la la la la la la
Whoa oh oh oh
La la la la la la la la
Whoa oh oh oh

In Los Angeles, the sun shines too often
But there's far too much fog up in the Bay
I'd rather be too cold and wet
Than soaked in my own sweat
So I know I'll be OK
Oh, I know I'll be OK

And it's painful admitting that you're lonely
But it's lonelier admitting you're in pain
Well my body's broken down
But my spirit's leaving town
So I know I'll be OK
Oh, I know I'll be OK

I'm singing la la la la la la la la
Whoa oh oh oh
La la la la la la la la
Whoa oh oh oh

Oh, I know I'll be OK
Oh, I know I'll be OK
Oh, I know I'll be OK
Oh, I know I'll be OK
Oh, I know I'll be OK
