Run 02:25
Train's gonna run on them old steel rails River's gonna run to the sea Baby's gonna run to the Creek Motel And it don't mean anything to me Got me a dollar for a ride downtown Stumbled back home for free Picked up a penny laying right side down And it don't mean anything to me Lost my daddy to the old coal mine My brother to a rope in a tree Lost my money and I lost my mind And it don't mean anything to me Train's gonna run on them old steel rails River's gonna run to the sea Baby's gonna run to the Creek Motel And it don't mean anything to me Old man sleeping by a cigarette store Black bird screaming in a tree I stared at the ceiling til half past four And it don't mean anything to me Train's gonna run on them old steel rails River's gonna run to the sea Baby's gonna run to the Creek Motel And it don't mean anything to me

Carrying On 03:45
Everybody's following me, and I don't know where to go Everybody's looking at me, and I can't put on this show Everybody's talking to me. About what? I don't know But I keep carrying on, anyway My baby loves me, and I don't know why I try to make her happy, but I sometimes make her cry She keeps sticking around, and, Lord, so do I We keep carrying on, anyway I got a little bit of money, but it's not enough To cover these bills I gotta pay And getting out of bed in the morning is sometimes pretty rough But I keep carrying on, anyway People these days are looking for a fight Talking about the world just like it's black and white But yelling the loudest doesn't make you right They keep carrying on, anyway I got a little bit of money, but it's not enough To cover these bills I gotta pay And getting out of bed in the morning is sometimes pretty rough But I keep carrying on, anyway We spend our lives in fear cause love's too hard We spend our money on pills cause the cure's against the law We spend our days trying to hide our scars We keep carrying on, anyway I got a little bit of money, but it's not enough To cover these bills I gotta pay And getting out of bed in the morning is sometimes pretty rough But I keep carrying on anyway I keep carrying on anyway I keep carrying on anyway I keep carrying on anyway
