《Uphill Mountain》歌詞:byJackie Greene mp3歌詞

Big Joe Tuner, Elmore James

Street survivor selling walking canes

Says: “Give your babies holy names for me”

Now I don’t know, but I’ve been told

You never grow up, you’ll never get old

You can watch the world being bought and sold

All on your T.V

Sometimes it gets a little rough

Like the wheel’s made of steel going an uphill mountain

Better stand tall if you’re gonna stand at all

And if you’re gonna fall, well you might as well fall

Build a house, make it home

Gonna make a place where I can be alone

Don’t the yard look pretty when it?s overgrown?

Standing six feet tall

This ain’t right, but it’s a livin’

You got to take just what you are given

‘Cause luck only matters with the cards and the women

And sometimes not at all

Sometimes it gets a little rough

Like the wheel’s made of steel going an uphill mountain

Better stand tall if you’re gonna stand at all

And if you’re gonna fall, well you might as well fall

Peeping Tom said to Madame Rose:

I’ve seen you already without your clothes,

now what I suggest, honey what I propose is that

You see me without mine?

Tell John Henry and Cassius Clay

Swinging iron for a living is a hell of a way

But whatever you do don’t let your hammer stray

I believe we’ll be just fine

Sometimes it gets a little rough

Like the wheel’s made of steel going an uphill mountain

Better stand tall if you’re gonna stand at all

And if you’re gonna crawl, well you might as well crawl
