about

One of the few songs in my life that I sat down and wrote the whole thing, music and lyrics both in about 20 minutes. Wish it was like that all the time...

lyrics

Keep on Goin’
(verse1)
She was born in a ghost town way out west
‘bout a million-billion miles from anywhere
She could find her way back home, I guess...
But the truth is, She doesn’t really care
(chorus)
And the wind blows across the land
And the rivers keep on flowin’
Just as long as stars keep shining on her head
She’ll just keep on,
Keep on goin’
(verse2)
She was wild like the tangles up in her hair
That hadn’t seen a brush or comb in years
She doesn’t know where she’s goin’
She’ll know when she gets there
All she knows is that it’s far away from here...
(chorus)
And the wind blows across the land
And the rivers keep on flowin’
Just as long as stars keep shining on her head
She’ll just keep on
Keep on goin’
(bridge)
But I need her like the land needs rain
I love her in spite of all the pain
I’ll search forever just to find a way
To love her enough to make her stay...
(verse3)
But the road calls her name like a siren’s song
If you asked her she couldn’t tell you why
So far my love’s not strong enough to make this her home
But all my life, I’ll always try!
(chorus)
And the wind blows across the land
And the rivers keep on flowin’
Just as long as stars keep shining on her head
She’ll just keep on
Keep on goin’
