Like the pine trees lining the winding road
Like the singing bird and the croaking toad
And I carry it with me like my daddy did

Moving ahead so life won't pass me by
Like the north wind whistlin' down the sky
Like the whippoorwill and the baby's cry
And I carry it with me and I sing it loud

Moving ahead so life won't pass me by
And I'm gonna go there free
Like the fool I am and I'll always be
They can change their minds but they can't change me
Oh, I know I could share it if you'd want me to

Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by
