We longed for something
Wasn’t quite sure what
But we thought he might find it
If he could reach the top
On the way he gathered
Towards a working place
Pitched his Farari on his resume

On the everyday journey of an ordinary man
Taking absolutely nowhere
But he’s doing the best he can
All the work and worries of a traveling man
Only take him to a place where he first began
Oh the everyday journey of an ordinary man

Listen fifty years where we reach his journey end
No one asked how high he climbed
Or what his name had been
They just wield him to the sunroom
To do puzzles all alone
Another grumpy man in a nurse home

On the everyday journey of an ordinary man
Taking absolutely nowhere
But he’s doing the best he can
All the work and worries of a traveling man
Only take him to a place where he first began
Oh the everyday journey of an ordinary man

But the one they found Jesus
On the bible on the shelf
Put his mind on others
And turned on himself
Theirs a smile on his face
As he wipes away the tears
The company the memories
All the places he’s been

On the everyday journey of an ordinary man
Taking absolutely nowhere
But he’s doing the best he can
All the work and worries of a traveling man
Only take him to a place where he first began

On the everyday journey of an ordinary man
Taking absolutely nowhere
But he’s doing the best he can
All the work and worries of a traveling man
Only take him to a place where he first began
Oh the everyday journey
Oh the everyday journey
Oh the everyday journey of an ordinary man
