Hows About Tellin' a Story

This song is by Devendra Banhart and appears on the album Cripple Crow (2005).

Well how's about tellin' a story?
One that's really about somebody.
What they saw and what they did,
How they died and how they lived.

By the time I found a name I moved onto another game,
Called write a song, toes and spines, is goddamn...
Now I can't think of any story lines,
But you know I'd love to try and sing about a person, place, or thing.

Mansonite and the Wolfman, Katmandu, and Honest Abe,
Something happens up in Tucson and then it happens again in Maine.
San Francisco, sweet thing, ladeedada da... na na!
