Thatís For Sure

 

Too many folks today see their lives moviní away so fast

I know what theyíre feeling

I walk around this town and see the hotspots shutting down

This place is reeling

Thereís fewer cars out on the road

Youíd swear the heart of this whole townís been grieving

 

It was a weeknight when I wandered in

To the Busted Mule across the ditch from Henryís

I knocked a cold one back for 2 and a half

Thought the whole place was funny but no one laughed at me then

I ordered up another draught of anything

Hoping to find a reason

 

If you think that Iím a stubborn man

And I know exactly who I am Ė for sure

Thatís for sure

When it comes time for a stand-up fight

I know whatís right and what to believe in

Thatís for sure

Been known to have an opinion or two and then some

About everything

Iím ready to give a slug or two and take some

Cause Iím not leaving

 

It was a Saturday when I drove that bike

Across two great states to the Illinois State line

Into the Land Of Lincoln I hoped Iíd find

A better place with answers to the questions in my mind

Thereís no easy answers out there on the road

But you can look into the heart and soul

 

If you think that Iím a stubborn man

Then you know exactly who I am Ė for sure

Thatís for sure

When the time comes for a stand-up fight

I know whatís right and what to believe in

Thatís for sure

Been known to have an opinion or two and then some

About everything

Iím ready to give a slug or two and take some

Cause Iím not leaving

 

It was a Sunday when I went on down to the church and knelt down

And got me to prayin

I prayed to God that weíd all get along

And weíd find a track for this old train to stay in

Cause at the end of the day we all hang on

And trust the switchman

 

If you think that Iím a stubborn man

And I know exactly who I am Ė for sure

Thatís for sure

When the time comes for a stand-up fight

I know whatís right and what to believe in

Thatís for sure

Been known to have an opinion or two and then some

About everything

Iím ready to give a slug or two and take some

Cause Iím not leaving
