Busted shoes and ramblin’ blues,
I'm going nowhere but I'll get there soon.
A hot day's work beneath the moon
and tonight i'm a long time gone.
“ This life is an ambush,” he said
“and I can still hear her voice when I lie in bed.
These thoughts keep burning up inside of my head
you gotta keep on keepin' on.”
I got beat, couldn't take the heat
and with the noise that night I was kept asleep
Life drags by 8 days a week
and the summertime's come and gone
“This life is an ambush,” he said
“and some day's I wake up wishing I was dead.
It's written on the walls, but it's never been read
you gotta keep on keepin' on.”
Broken homes and broken hearts,
it was already over since before the start
Fix me up and glue me back apart
and set me right back stumbling along
“This life is an ambush,” he said
“and I can still hear her voice when I lie in bed.
These thoughts keep burning up inside of my head
you gotta keep on keepin' on.”
Empty roads and patched up clothes
and the night so quiet its about to explode
Wind is crashing and the lightning blows
Lord knows these days are long
“This life is an ambush,” he said
“and some day's I wake up wishing I was dead.
It's written on the walls, but it's never been read
you gotta keep on keepin' on.”
