"The Good Fight" as written by John David Souther and Jimmy Buffett....
They talk about the women too much
Women got 'em so confused
They don't talk about their lives as such
My life is all I got to lose
They take it with a grain of salt
And laugh at the complexities

They're good at pickin' all the faults
I keep laughin' so they don't pick me
Jesus if I had to quit tonight
I'd never know if I was Wrong or right
But That's just what you get
You gotta go the distance
If you're gonna fight a good fight,gooood fight

[Chorus]
Keep it up and keep a good fight
Keep it up and keep a good fight
Yes it's got to be a good fight
All I want is just a good fight

Telephone begins to ring
That could only be one call
I might as well be on the moon
Standin' in the shower stall
I can't believe she picked it up
She didn't know the rules somehow
And then I hear her say hello-hello
Panic in the gray room now

Jesus if I had to quit tonight
She'd kill me whether I was wrong or right
But that's just what you get
You got to go the distance
If you want to fight a good fight

You never know until you try
It's hard to see which side your on
Some people say your half way here
Some people say your half way gone

[Chorus]

    General Commentthe good fight is about never giving up and never taking the easiest way if its the wrong one.
    "I'd never know if I was Wrong or right"
    we never truly know if what we did was for the best until its all over.
    there always seems to be two well defined paths(right or wrong, half way there, half way gone), sometimes we think we see a grey area where right and wrong border each other, but unfortunately, there's no excuse for bad judgement.

    General CommentIn the original liner notes, Jimmy dedicated this to Muhammad Ali. Take that as you will.
