Don't stop even for the right thing does it matter what I say? my whole world was by that river
flowing off to meet the sea each day I don't want to move away. You look at me and you say "what's wrong boy?" What else do you want me to say? I don't want to leave tomorrow been and gone but I belong here now Your big world can wait another day. Brighter days where did they go? I am hopeful for where I'm going but I belong in The South That was where I was born a poor boy Living life like there's no end in sight even so I've done without Brighter days where did they go? Boy, you're about to hit the bottom I feel alone, I feel I'm moving there To a land you never saw and I see you're about to hit the bottom Lord help me move away to a land you never saw and I've seen. Brighter days where did they go?
