Long Way to Go

Long Way to Go No time to waste no time to rest got to get on my way 'cause times gettin' short, an' I got a long way to go. When I got up this mornin' grabbed a quick cup of joe jumped into my car and down the road I go, 'cause times gettin' short, an' I got a long way to go. No time to smell the roses no time to see the sights got to get on down that road, 'cause times getting short, an' I got a long way to go. Why all the rush? Why all the dust? just running on down that road, 'cause times getting short, an' I got a long way to go. Each day that goes on by is one less that I have, don't have time to waste, no time to fool around, 'cause times getting short, an' I got a long way to go.

    That get up and go is doing a great job. A thoughtful verse on reality of time.
