"Ballad Of El Goodo" as written by Alex Chilton and Christopher Bell....
Years ago my heart was set to live, oh
And I've been trying hard against unblievable odds
Gets so hard at times like now to hold on
Guns they wait to be stuck by

That my side is gone
And there ain't no one going to turn me around
There ain't no one going to turn me around
People around you tell you that they know

The places they've been to and it's easy to go
They'll zip you up and dress you down and stand you in a room
You know you don't have to
You can just say no

And they're ain't no one going to turn me around
There ain't no one going to turn me around
There ain't no one going to turn me around
There ain't no one going to turn me around

I've been built up and trusted
Broke down and busted
They'll get theirs and we'll get ours
If you can just hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

Years ago my heart was set to live, oh
And I've been trying hard against, against strong odds
Gets so hard at times like now to hold on
Gonna fall if I don't fight

That my side is gone
And there ain't no one going to turn me around
There ain't no one going to turn me around
Ain't no one going to turn me around

There ain't no one going to turn me around

    General CommentThis is about living in a world where everyone will tell you how to live your life, how to dress, how to act, what to think, what to believe, and all that stuff. We've each got to follow our own paths, shutting out all the outside opinions and forces.
