If I could only fly, if I could only fly
I'd bid this place goodbye, to come and be with you
But I can hardly stand, I got nowhere to run
Another sinkin' sun, one more lonely night
There it is: fly / stand / run. Never overlook the poetry in sentimental music. Here is the song sung by Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard.
There's another version here (1 minute, 15 seconds in), sung by Haggard on his own.
