lyrics

I traded Religion for Business and Money for Faith
And I stayed on the sidelines where I knew I was safe
Well, my money seems funny, and business ain't great
I'm giving up on my business, and living by Faith

60 seconds is a minute, 60 minutes is an hour
7 days in a week, and time is money, and money's power
30 days in a month, 12 months in a year
I better start living, before I'm out of here

I spent my life trying, trying so hard
But I feel like a dog chasing sticks in the yard
I've waited on people time and again
But just because they're people, don't mean they're your friends
Your friends...?
Yode-alay-dee-hooo

I've read all the books they told me to read
And I've followed the leader and practiced good deeds
But now leaders seem meaner than they ought to be
I'm giving up on my leaders and start living free

I was born a bastard, my parents weren't Wed
And I only found out after both of them were dead
Now a Son needs a Father, a Father a Wife
Let's get on with living the rest of my life

I spent my life trying, trying so hard
But I feel like a dog chasing sticks in the yard
I've waited on people time and again
But just because they're people, don't mean they're your friends
Your friends...?
Yode-alay-dee-hooo

She, having grown up on 50's rockabilly and country icons like Loretta Lynn, taught Richard the guitar at an early age. But it was upon his discovery of the Beatles that made Richard obsess over music, learning guitar, bass, piano & drums and writing boxes full of songs. ... more
