Lyrics - Keep the Word Movin'

Keep the Word Movin'
(written by Walter Egan, from 2002's Beach Access)

Oh itís a cold, cold day down in Tennessee
And I just donít know what is wrong with me
Thereís frost out on my Cherokee
Iím land locked

And these days, these days go rushing by
And I do my best just to try and try
But I just canít turn back the hands of time
That damn clock

And the phone rings, I pick it up
What my friend says just picks me up
Keep the word movin,í he says
Keep the word moviní
The dreamís not dead

And there was once a time we hung around
When weíd play our song just to hear the sound
Seems like nothing then ever got us down
In those days

But now we live our lives in another place
And devote our time to this crazy chase
And we donít forget but the time erases
Those days

Sometimes it seems out of reach
Those days and nights by the beach
Keep the word movin,í he says
Keep the word moviní
The dreamís not dead
Hey!
Hey!

And donít you know this life is a funny thing
And you never know just what it will bring
When they say thereís always another spring
ĎTil then, yeah

And now I find myself on a big olí plane
Just a flyiní out to the golden state
ĎCause tonight the bandís gonna play again
Imagine

I never give up
I never say die
Better to live
Better to fly
Keep the word movin,í he says
Keep the word moviní
The dreamís not dead
Keep the word movin,í he says
Keep the word moviní
The dreamís not dead
