LET ME TAKE YOU ON A JOURNEY
This is the real world and we are alive,
God created this world and jesus was an only son.
We have today, there are no answers as tomorrow never knows,
It’s been a long time comin’ but after millions of years life visits me.
Some have american skin, once there wasn’t any,
Since the beginning of time those who existed were worlds apart.
Being in such small groups in the early days of man,
Well! the thought was we take care of our own,
You needed a good eye to watch for danger.
Here we go, livin’ in the future, nothing to hear, a radio nowhere,
I came upon some black cowboys, one they called outlaw Pete.
A silver palomino, wanted by the law, riding under an empty sky,
The price you pay for being on the wrong side of justice.
You’ll be comin’ down when you want it all or nothin’ at all,
When your life is about doing only bad then you’re just a dead man walkin’
Drifting further on up the road in a time of machines was he,
A gypsy biker told me a story called the ghost of Tom Joad.
He was a soul driver on a search for something,
A hungry heart had he, spoke of Independence Day then said the long goodbye.
Thinking about family and the ties that bind, I remember Maria’s bed,
I think of her, my sherry darling,
Thoughts of another, asking Rosalita, come out tonight, my crush on you.
