Lace-up boots and faded jeans
A homemade sandwich, a jug of tea
Average Joe, average pay
Same ol' end and same ol' day

But there's nothing wrong with a hard hat and a hammer
Kind of glue that sticks this world together
Hands of steel and cradle of the Promised Land
God bless the working man

All week long making a living
Life keeps takin', he keeps giving
Behind the scene, below the grade
Hardly noticed but part of everything

But there's nothing wrong with a hard hat and a hammer
Kind of glue that sticks this world together
Hands of steel and cradle of the Promised Land
God bless the working man

He gives his life then fades away
Another young man takes his place
Average Joe, average pay
Same ol end, same old' day

But there's nothing wrong with a hard hat and a hammer
Kind of glue that sticks this world together
Hands of steel and cradle of the Promised Land

No, there's nothing wrong with a hard hat and a hammer
Kind of glue that sticks this world together
Hands of steel and cradle of the Promised Land
God bless the working man

The working man
Oh, the working man and woman

. . .


The love you thought was dead and gone
Somehow keeps on hanging on
Even when your heart has left it far behind

Just when you have turned the page
It seems to find a way
And there it is again every now and then

Every now and then
That ol' feeling comes around
Every now and then
I see your face in another cloud

And every now and then
Some old something
Takes me right back again
Every now and then

You can finally breathe life in
Without wondering where she's been
Go to sleep at night without her on your mind

In a second it appears
Followed by familiar tears
Like a long-lost friend every now and then

And every now and then
That ol' feeling comes around
Every now and then
I see your face in another cloud

And every now and then
Some old something
Takes me right back again
Every now and then

And I know it's all for nothin'
There's no goin' back to way back when

But every now and then
That ol' feeling comes around
Every now and then
I see your face in another cloud

And every now and then
Some old something
Takes me right back again
Every now and then

I still love you
Every now and then

Her right hand closed the front porch door
Suddenly a child no more
All the ribbons, all the bows
In a box now on her closet floor
Anxious for what's to come
Afraid to leave a place she loves

She's not a woman, not a girl
Trying to find her place in this crazy world
Meet a lover, make a friend
Trying to figure out what this life really means
After 17

Broken hearts and rusted dreams
Sometimes make it hard to leave
Certainty is out of reach
Even with some self-beliefs
So she bites her lip and shows a smile
Flips her hair and flaunts her style

She's not a woman, not a girl
Trying to find her place in this crazy world
Meet a lover, make a friend
Trying to figure out what this life really means
After 17

Her memories she stowed away
Pulls them out on rainy days
Brand new faces take their place
Beside the ones that never fade
She's strong and fragile, weak and smart
Whatever cost she plays the part

She's not a woman, not a girl
Trying to find her place in this crazy world
Meet a lover, make a friend
Trying to figure out what this life really means
After 17, after 17

Her right hand closed the front porch door
And suddenly a child no more

That ol' sun comes up every mornin'
And goes back down at the end of every day
It's just that way

Stars show up every evenin'
Man in the moon comes out to play
It's just that way

And girl, lovin' you
Is something I was born to do
It's just that way

The ocean's wet, the desert's dry
Don't ask me why 'cause I can't say
It's just that way

As sure as the world keeps turnin'
My love for you will never change
Oh, it's just that way

And girl, lovin' you
Is something I was born to do
It's just that way

And girl, lovin' you
Is something I was born to do
It's just that way

That ol' sun comes up every mornin'
It's just that way

. . .


I just came down from Chippewa
Had as station wagon and a hundred dollars
Thinking about the girl I'd lost a year before
I hadn't seen her for some time
Thought I might go on by when your memory came flooding in and you closed that door.

Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door.
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it didnt have a heart
You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a freight train.

Well every time I talk to you I hear your jealous lines
I feel like I've been left abandoned on some old railway side
And every time I hear your voice my water just gets cold
My stoker will not stoke and my boiler will not boil.

Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door.
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it didnt have a heart
You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a freight train.

Well every time I fell behind I could not get ahead
I wish someone would pull the lever and give me a little sand
And every time I slip behind even further back
I wish some switch man would come out of the fog and change my track.

Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door.
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it didnt have a heart
You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a freight train.

Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a diesel locomotive
I'd come whistling down your track crashing in your door.
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it didnt have a heart
You need a shovel for the coal just to get me started
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a freight train baby
Wish it was a freight train.

You got the last of all your stuff
You got your car cranked up
And I guess there ain't a thing that I can say

I'm thinking as I'm standing here
And suddenly it all comes clear
As I watch you drive away

They should've made tail lights blue
So when I see them go, they'll look the way I do
Just a pale blue glow they should've made
I can't stay, sound like I love you
You know they should've made tail lights blue

I know it's gonna take some time
To get you off my mind
And forget how happy we once were

I don't know how to bring you back
And as a matter of fact
The only thing I know for sure is that

They should've made tail lights blue
So when I see them go, they'll look the way I do
Just a pale blue glow, they should've made
I can't stay, sound like I love you
You know they should've made tail lights blue

They should've made tail lights blue
So when I see them go, they'll look the way I do
Just a pale blue glow, they should've made
I can't stay, sound like I love you
You know they should've made tail lights blue

I could get used to this lovin' thing
The way you call my name in love's embrace
I could get use to you everyday
And your tender ways, I kinda like this lovin' thing

I've had romance a time or two
Infatuation then I found you
I've had 'em steal my heart and run
And that ain't fun for anyone

I could get used to this lovin' thing
The way you call my name in love's embrace
I could get use to you everyday
And your tender ways, I kinda like this lovin' thing

I like the way you make me feel
And what I feel, feels like its real
I never once said I love you
Until I felt the one that's true

I could get used to this lovin' thing
The way you call my name in love's embrace
I could get use to you everyday
And your tender ways, I kinda like this lovin' thing

Yeah, I could get used to this lovin' thing
The way you call my name in love's embrace
I could get use to you everyday
And your tender ways, I kinda like this lovin' thing

I could get use to you everyday
And those tender ways, I kinda like this lovin' thing

. . .


If I never see your loving face again
I'll go on loving you till the end
And if my broken hearted love don't find a way to mend
I'll go on loving you till the end

The years and miles may separate you from me
The pain may lessen more as time goes by
But as for me your memories will never fade
And I'll go on loving you till the end

If we're ever free to love again I know
Straight to your waiting arms is where I'll go
And there I'll stay forever and I'll prove to you again
I'll go on loving you till the end
And I'll go on loving you till the end

. . .


When the frantic pace of life attacks me
And weighs me to the ground
I long for someplace to escape
To the one place I have found

No stoplights to obey
No signs or limits there
Just drop the hook
And make your home almost anywhere

Where the sky meets the water
Where the wind is my song
Where the sun is my brother
That's where I belong

The gentle motion of the seas
Just rocks me off to sleep
No sirens, cars or screams
Just quiet ocean breeze

A frigate bird encircles me
A 1000 feet above
She dips her wing and bows her head
Like we share a common love

Where the sky meets the water
Where the wind is my song
Where the sun is my brother
That's where I belong

When the moonlight cracks the edge of night
And stars are everywhere
I can taste the rum and coke
And I can smell that salty air

A light spray across my bow
Cools the evening sun
As it slowly melts into the sea
And tells me day is done

Where the sky meets the water
Where the wind is my song
Where the sun is my brother
That's where I belong

When the common themes of life
They come and overload my brain
I steer my thoughts right to that place
That takes me far away

When the traffic fills that concrete path
That takes me back and forth
I usually sit and dream about
That biggest piece of earth

Where the sky meets the water
Where the wind is my song
Where the sun is my brother
That's where I belong

Where the sky meets the water
Where the wind is my song
Where the sun is my brother
That's where I belong

Yeah, that's where I belong
Oh, that's where I belong

. . .


Oh, I'm blessed and I know I am
God has dealt me a winning hand
A loving woman and a fairyland for me
Oh, and I can't believe it half the time
When I look at her in perfect light
A sweet vision every day and night I see

My baby has big green eyes
Brighter than the bluest sky
Softer than an angel flies
Sweeter than a lullaby

And she loves me without design
The picture never leaves my mind
I don't deserve a love this fine
My baby and her big green eyes

Oh and I'm never very far away
Even if I'm in another place
Her smile you can't erase from me

My baby has big green eyes
Brighter than the bluest sky
Softer than an angel flies
Sweeter than a lullaby

And she loves me without design
The picture never leaves my mind
I don't deserve a love this fine
My baby and her big green eyes

Oh, I'm thankful every waking hour
For the love of a gentle flower
A face I will never tire or leave

My baby has big green eyes
Brighter than the bluest sky
Softer than an angel flies
Sweeter than a lullaby

And she loves me without design
The picture never leaves my mind
I don't deserve a love this fine
My baby and her big green eyes

The picture never leaves my mind
I don't deserve a love this fine
My baby and her big green eyes

. . .


True love is a golden ring
Like the vows we made it's a precious thing
Sent from above on silver wings
True love is a golden ring

Down a winding road with many turns
Through fire and smoke and bridges burned
I've held my share of stranger's hands
Now holding yours, I understand

True love is a golden ring
Like the vows we made it's a precious thing
Sent from above on silver wings
True love is a golden ring

Love is so much more than a one-night stand
Like the endless turn of a wedding band
Looking in your eyes I see the truth
After all this time I found you

True love is a golden ring
Like the vows we made it's a precious thing
Sent from above on silver wings
True love is a golden ring
Oh, true love is a golden ring

. . .


We started out and life was perfect
I never thought our love would change
But years of ups and downs made a difference
It's not the same as it was yesterday

I don't treat you like I used to
You don't look the same into my eyes
We thought the best would be behind us
But the best keeps getting better all the time

We learned how to love and how to make up
And found what it takes to be enough
Like a 30-year-old wine hearts intertwined
The best keeps getting better all the time

I love you now more than ever
And you appreciate me more today
Melted together, hearts and minds
The best keeps getting better all the time

We learned how to love and how to make up
And found what it takes to be enough
Like a 30-year-old wine, hearts intertwined
The best keeps getting better all the time

Like a 30-year-old wine, hearts intertwined
The best keeps getting better all the time
The best keeps getting better all the time
