You Will Get There

You Will Get There (Charlie Midnight, The Deed)

We were on the road to Woodstock
‘Cause we thought that we would find
Some love and understanding
And a little peace of mind
We thought we’d lost direction
And the hour was getting late
Then a voice said, just stay on this road
And keep on going straight

You will get there
You will get there
You will get there by and by
One more hourOne more minute
You will get there if you try
One more mile to redemption
One more step, one more fall
You will get there
You will get there, after all

We were climbing Kilimanjaro
And we couldn’t see the top
The cold felt like a razor
And the wind, it wouldn’t stop
We felt our bodies weaken
And our wills about to crack
Then a voice said, it’s a long way up
But there ain’t no turnin’ back

You will get there
You will get there
You will get there by and by
One more hourOne more minute
You will get there if you try
One more mile to redemption
One more step, one more fall
You will get there
You will get there, after all

And I saw you in the spotlight
You were dancing for your life
Your boyfriend stood there watchin’
Ready to cut you with a knife
I took out my revolverAnd put it to his head
I said, “boy, the thing about this life
Is we’re all gonna end up dead”

You will get there
You will get there
You will get there by and by
One more hour
One more minute
You will get there if you try
One more mile to redemption
One more step, one more fall
You will get there
You will get there, after all
