How the early times were a hustle and a haze
Money weren’t for nothing and the downs would last for days
Had to bang on my guitar, as if I had something to prove
And if I ever thought of giving up I heard a voice say ‘no can do’

I could always hear the rumbling, feel the pulling on my chain
A notion of deliverance be winding through my brain
My boosters clicked to turbo, as I climbed back into my groove
And from the back seat come a little voice a-whispering ‘do what you do’

Grabbed a fortune cookie from the big glass bowl
When I tell you what it said to me, your eyes are gonna roll
Good luck was around the corner, wise man make careful moves
And these words sparked the fire in the chambers, and I punched on through

That big block is stronger than it appears
Hardened muscle built from all these years
So take a good long look around and drop it into gear

Now there ain’t no sense in moaning every time you miss a turn
Count yourself lucky for another chance to learn
Why this and that keeps happening, ain’t for you to understand
So get on off the ropes and start swinging, like you can
