Please dont dominate the rap, jack, if youve got nothing new to say. If you please, dont back up the track this trains got to run today. I spent a little time on the mountain, I spent a little time on the hill I heard someone say better run away, others say better stand still.
Now I dont know, but I been told its hard to run with the weight of gold, Other hand I have heard it said, its just as hard with the weight of lead.
Who can deny, who can deny, its not just a change in style? One step down and another begun and I wonder how many miles. I spent a little time on the mountain, I spent a little time on the hill Things went down we dont understand, but I think in time we will. Now, I dont know but I was told in the heat of the sun a man died of cold. Keep on coming or stand and wait, with the sun so dark and the hour so late. You cant overlook the lack, jack, of any other highway to ride. Its got no signs or dividing lines and very few rule to guide.
I saw things getting out of hand, I guess they always will. Now I dont know but I been told If the horse dont pull you got to carry the load. I dont know whose backs that strong, maybe find out before too long.
One way or another, one way or another, One way or another, this darkness got to give.
