So I'm down and so I'm out
So are many others
So I feel like tryin' to hide my head
'Neath these covers

Life is like the seasons
After winter comes the spring
So I think, Ill stay awhile
And see what tomorrow brings

I've been told and I believe
That life is meant for livin'
Even when my chips are low
There's still some left for givin'

I've been many places
Maybe not as far as you
So I think, I'll stay awhile
And see if some dreams come true

There isn't much that I have learned
Through all my foolish years
Except that life just run in cycles
First there's laughter, then those tears

But I'll keep my head up high
Although I'm kind of tired
My gal just up and left last week
Friday I got fired

You know, it's almost funny
Things can't get worse than now
But I'll keep on tryin' to sing
But please, just don't ask me how

Songwriters
CALDWELL, GAYLE
