Lyrics

When the day is good, and the wind is dry,
And the goose is hanging high,
I can't work like other men do,
When the goose is hanging high.
There's a big, bright sun in the big, blue sky,
And the goose is hanging high,
And the devil steals my heart away
When the goose is hanging high.
Gold and silver on my mind
Mischief in my soul
I wanna live like the rich man lives
With life in my control!
When the day is bad, and the wind is wet,
And the goose is flying low,
I gotta work like other men do,
When the goose is flying low.
But...when...the...
Day is good, and the wind is dry,
And the goose is hanging high.
I can't work like other men do
When the goose is hanging high!
When...the goose is hanging high!
