Journey #4

I left my home a couple months back
Caught a ride down the Appalachian track
The driver, oh, places he’d been
He said son . . . You can’t win unless you begin

Stopped at a diner off the highway
A lonely waitress served me some hot eggs
When I saw her daughter, I about fell off my chair
She said son . . . there’s so much beauty everywhere

Now I’m from a nation, it’s called the Midwest
Farming and hunting are what we do best
The sun keeps me warm, the earth keeps me fed
Father said son . . . we live where we’ve bled

I arrived at night to find the shoreline
Now I can say I touched the ocean just one time
There was an old man having a smoke on the beach
He said son . . . there ain’t nothing out of our reach

Now little sister you know that I’ll be back again
But I learned my lesson I ain’t never looking back again
Earned my stripes picking coins up off the street
In this life . . . you earn what you keep

In this life . . . you earn what you keep.
