"Walking The Fine Line" as written by and Thomas William Cochrane....
I lost my job in the darkest place
I'm going to get back up
I'm gonna clean my face
And take that longest ride
I talked to the man with the busy pen
I'm tired of being on the losing end

I'm going to walk with pride
Walking that fine line
Between the sun and the sky
The smoke and the steel you and me
Taking the longest ride
Crack the sky
But get out alive this time

Me and my friend we been up all night
Had a drink on John, had a drink on the mine
Now we'll leave this ghost town

She said, 'Show me a good man
I'll show you a slave
Show me a free man
I'll show you the brave'
Hold your head up high

Never had the guts to turn it around
Never had the guts to tear it down
Now we got the chance to

We're walking that fine line
Between a free man and a slave
The wind and the sea you and me
Taking that longest ride
Crack the sky
Get out alive this time

Walking that fine line

    General Commentthis is a hard one to comment on in a public forum. I guess if you knew me long it is about my balance between my 'careers' the smoke and the steel. and of course other struggles.
