"THE LAST MILE" as written by and Thomas Carl Keifer....
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 you're comin' back

Down on the farmland 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 a while before I get my peace
With the same style I walked for years
On the last mile I can rest my fears

I got a long way to go before I reach the light of day
Monkeys on my back I gotta find a better way
Same old story never get just what you want
The more you got, the more you want
Sometimes you do and then you don't

I guess I've always been a travelin' man
'Cause when I'm movin' I can make a stand

And walk the last mile before I sleep
It'll be a while before I get my peace
With the same style I walked for years
On the last mile I can rest my fears

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

On the last mile
On the last mile

I guess I've always been a travelin' man
'Cause when I'm movin' I can make a stand, yeah, yeah

And walk the last mile before I sleep
It'll be a while before I get my peace
With the same style I walked for years
On the last mile I can rest my fears

The last mile before I sleep
It'll be a while before I get my peace
With the same style I walked for years
On the last mile I can rest my fears

The last mile before I sleep
It'll be a while before I get my peace
With the same style I walked for years
On the last mile I can rest my fears

    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!
