Lyrics

‘Take it easy’ said a tramp on the road,
‘and try to shift the weight down to your feet,
it takes time my friend to carry your load,
you can’t hitch a ride down to easy street’

So long the days are gone of never staying down,
there were answers to my questions,
but ever since the chill set in
the world is wearing frowns,
and now I’m seeking some protection

‘I’ll paint the world for you,
and dress it up without the blues
if you want me to, but it just ain’t true,
Life is not a one-way road,
it’s a give and take, not an overload,
so keep pushing through’
he went out of view

Sunshine came into my brain,
my valley filled with love,
peaceful times of contemplation,
Seasons changed, I’m rearranged
and the wolves are on the prowl
bringing winds of devastation

‘Take it easy’ said a tramp on the road,
‘and try to shift the weight down to your feet,
it takes time my friend to carry your load,
you can’t hitch a ride down to easy street,
you can’t hitch a ride, you’ve got to use your feet
