Walk Tall Lyrics

by John Mellencamp

The simple minded and the uninformed can be easily led astray
And those that cannot connect the dots hey look the other way
People believe what they want to believe when it makes no sense at all
So be careful of those killing Jesus's name
He don't believe in killing at all

Walk tall
(Keep on walkin', keep on talkin')
Yeah walk on
(Keep on walkin', keep on talkin')
Through this world walk tall

Somewhere out in the distance is the death of you and me
Even though we don't think of it much it's still out there for us to see
If you treat your life like a bar room fight you'll die stinking of gin
No drunkards allowed in Heaven, no sinners will get in

Walk tall
(Keep on walkin', keep on talkin')
Yeah, walk on
(Keep on walkin', keep on talkin')
Walk tall
(Keep on walkin', keep on talkin')
Through this world, walk tall

So be careful in what you believe in there's plenty to get you confused
And in this land called paradise you must walk in many men's shoes
Bigotry and hatred are enemies to us all
Grace, mercy and forgiveness will help a man walk tall

So walk tall
(Keep on walkin', keep on walkin')
Yeah, walk on
(Keep on walkin', keep on walkin')
Walk tall
(Keep on walkin', keep on walkin')
Through this world, through this world

Yeah, walk tall yeah
(Keep on walkin', keep on walkin')
Then walk on yeah
(Keep on walkin', keep on walkin')
Walk tall yeah
(Keep on walkin', keep on walkin')
Then walk on yeah, yeah, yeah
(Keep on walkin', keep on walkin')

Through this world
(Keep on walkin)
Through this world
(Keep on walkin')
Through this world
(Keep on walkin',)
Through this world
(Keep on walkin')

Walk tall
(Keep on walkin')
Walk tall
(Keep on walkin')
Then walk on
(Keep on walkin', keep on walkin')
