"THE LAST MILE" as written by and Thomas Carl Keifer....
Oh

Oh yeah!

Me and Billy boy and old lady Jane
We hitched a ride took a fast movin' train
got to the top with our heads spinnin' round
You never know just what you got until it's comin' back

Down on the farm in the Mississippi shade
The folks down there they told me
Take it day by day

And walk the last mile (before I sleep)
It'll be awhile (before I get my peace)
Last Mile (I walk slowly)
The last mile (I can rest my feet)

I got a long way to go before I reach the light of day
Monkey's on my back I gotta find a better way
Same ole story never get just what you want
The more you get the more you want
so tell me to and get picked up
I guess I've always been a traveling man
'Cause when I'm movin' I can make a stand yeah, yeah

And walk the last mile (before I sleep)
It'll be awhile (before I get my peace)
Last Mile (I walk slowly)
The last mile (I can rest my feet)

Don't know where I'm going but I know where I've been
Look around me everybody's trying to win

And walk the last mile (before I sleep)
It'll be awhile (before I get my peace)
Last Mile (I walk slowly)
The last mile (I can rest my feet)

    General CommentAwesome song, one of my favs. Not sure what its about, other than maybe being a musician performing (and therefore touring/travelling) he feels more complete or like he's doing what he wants with his life? Regardless, it rocks!
