When The Bottom Fell Out

(Vic Chesnutt )

When The Bottom Fell Out
there wasn’t any doubt
I just suddenly found myself
free falling
and from such a height
the wind it had a bite
and it took all my might
to fight the fright

I fell in spread eagle
must have found an airfoil
or some kind of wing
and I gained some equilibrium
and caught myself gliding

When the bottom fell out
observers heard me shout
so long, it’s been good to know you
when I finally smashed
into that virgin grass
I will say it’s been pretty great goin’
