On the way to my appointment with Death
I picked up my paycheck and spent a week in a tent
and I stopped to raise a daughter or two
with my wife—that was the best
then came the accident

and I thought I saw Him smiling
and checking His watch
as it swung at the end of its fob
hypnotizing me

but then I came to
and remembered all the things
that I had still left to do
so I jumped into a cab
and I made it just in time
to piano recitals
and family reunions
and mornings at the zoo

Then I came to a mountain
and wondered if I’d found Him
as I gazed all around
to distant horizons

but my phone began to ring
excuse me while I get this
it’s my daughter, she says
she’s moving to Wisconsin
Yes, of course I’ll be there
I just can’t wait to see you
on the way to my appointment with Death.
On the way to my appointment with Death.

I'm really very sorry and I hope it’s not too late
but I’m afraid I have to cancel, I just need another month,
one week, one day…

I’m on the way…
I’m on the way…
