Lyrics

Hey, Jerry!

Hey Jerry!
Why’d you go down? You got love in your heart and a thousand new parts
So worried, the future done come
You’re hungry and numb and you ain’t so young
But the verdict, it ain’t wrote
You got more years to work and explore the earth
Ain’t nothing, that can’t be done
When you got visions in rhymes, moons, stars and suns…

Oh, Jerry!
There’s plenty of time. The girl ain’t worth it, and who needs a fight?
Damn straight, it’s the wind and the rain
Might seem like a mountain but it’s the only way
So, hit it, the road ahead
Forget what you wanted and go for the best
Ain’t nothin’, that can’t be won
From the road ahead rises, the moon, stars and sun…

On the road from here to there we discover
That everything comes and goes ebbs and flows
Everything comes and goes ebbs and flows

So, breathe deep!
And don’t lose no sleep. There’s more to your story, your story is deep.
Drive far, the road has no end.
Earn what you take and need who you keep.
It ain’t luck, it ain’t luck at all man.
Make what you got, and be who you are
There ain’t nothin, that can’t be done
With hands, buckets, moons, stars and suns…

On the road from here to there we discover
That everything comes and goes ebbs and flows
Everything comes and goes, ebbs and flows
That everything comes and goes, ebbs and flows
Everything comes and goes, ebbs and flows
