Pillar To Post
(Written by Ray Harris ©2012 SOCAN)

I drove a thousand miles with the sun in my eyes,
A great big ball of fire hanging low in the sky,
They tell me I was born here, but I really don't recall,
Walked these streets from dusk 'til dawn,
And felt nothing at all.

What were you thinking - it's a son of a bitch,
A mind that gets the wanders and feets that gets the itch,
A good idea at the time but the mark sure got missed,
Hindsight's 20-20, it is what it is.

CHORUS: Don't make a promise, to a child you can't keep,
Waters don't have to be still to run deep,
My constant companions are these demons and ghosts,
As I wander this world from pillar to post.

BRIDGE: You better get a move on, better get a move on,
Better get a move on now,
You better get a move on, better get a move on,
Better get a move on now,
You better get a move on, better get a move on,
Better get a move on now...
Better get a move on now. >>> SOLO

Makin' do with what you got, sometimes ain't enough,
I've heard those hard luck stories, I remember things were rough,
Dysfunction, disentitlement - passed down through the years,
We learn by bad example, repetition and fear.

Mothers, fathers, sons and daughters - the wicked never rest,
Another place, another time, same old new address,
I drove a thousand miles with the sun in my eyes,
To find home is where the heart is,
But that's just my advice.
