"Lonely People" as written by Daniel M. Peek and Catherine L. Peek....
This is for all the lonely people
Thinking that life has passed them by
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
And ride that highway in the sky

This is for all the single people
Thinking that life has left them dry
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
You never know until you try

Well I'm on my way
Yes I'm on my way
Well I'm on my way back home

This is for all the lonely people
Thinking that life has passed them by
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
It should never take you down or never give you up
You never know until you try

Cause I'm on my way
Yes I'm on my way
Yeah I'm on my way back home

Yes I'm on my way
Yeah I'm on my way
Yes I'm on my way back home

    General CommentThis song speaks for itself... a message to not give up and give in.

    I love the throw-back beat and the John Lemmon-esque vocals. A true encouragement to the disheartened!!

    This was originally by America, but I love the Jars of Clay version, yes I do.
