"Keep On Moving" as written by Richard Breen, Jason Brown, Sean Kieran Conlon, Julian Gallagher and Richard Frederick Stannard....
Lord, I've got to keep on moving
Lord, I've got to get on down
Lord, I've got to keep on moving
Where I can't be found
Lord, they're coming after me

I've been accused for the killin'
Lord knows I didn't do
For hangin' me, they are willin', yeah, yeah
And that's why I've got to get on through
Lord, they're coming after me (a-one more time)

(I say) Lord, I've got to keep on moving
Lord, I've got to get on down
Lord, I've got to keep on moving
Where I can't be found
Lord, they're coming after me

(Now, listen) I've got two boys and a woman
They're just gonna suffer now
Lord, forgive me for not goin' back
But I'll be there anyhow
I'll be there anyhow (one more time)

(I say) Lord, I've got to keep on moving
Lord, I've got to get on down
Lord, I've got to keep on moving
Where I can't be found
Lord, they're coming after me

Now, maybe someday I'll find a piece of land
Somewhere not by near anyone
Then I'll send for my love, love, love, love, sweet woman
And my two grown up son
My two grown up son (yeah, yeah)

(I say now) Lord I've got to keep on moving

    General CommentNow this here is what people don't want to talk about. This is what redemption song is really about..the stripping away of the humanity of a race.

    General CommentThis song is about faith and you can say about redemption. Man being falsely accused for a killing but he knows that God knows he didn't do it. What he regrets most is leaving his wife and two children but he seeks the strength of God to keep on moving to hope to reunite with his family in the future. The theme of this song is basically about how the strength of God allows one to move on through difficult times.
