Rocky Road to Ruin
I'm on the Rocky Road to Ruin Been travellin' these years alone I've been wandering through the wilderness Trying to find me a job and a home. Same old story in every ghost town If I had me a pound for each one The jobs and the good times they came and they went And now even the whiskey is gone. CHORUS ----------- They say were all in this together Yeah yeah yeah They say everyone must do there bit Yeah yeah yeah So why are some folk swimming in gold While others are swimming in shit. ----------- Now they hung 'em from the lamposts Just like they said that they would But there was nobody there to clean up the streets So that made a fat lot of good. The day came for the revolution But the turnout was just fifty three Even though all the propaganda had failed The Final was on TV. CHORUS So I'll keep on movin' on Through the wind and the rain and the sun No, I'm not the only one on this Rocky Road. We thought the corruption had ended But it runs in the genes of the rich Life never was a bed of roses But now it's a son of a bitch. I lost my life in the City I could not get over the loss They tried to make me into something That I never was. CHORUS So I'll keep on keepin' on Through the wind and the rain and the sun No, I'm not the only one on this Rocky Road.
