Gotta Drive That Train (Larry W. Jones 05/11/2008) (song#5421)

Now, life’s too short for yesterdays
The sort of thing with no delays

If life’s ride is the bumpy kind
Just slide up front and you may find
Maybe while you were looking back
Your life has jumped right off the track

Now, it’s alright to remember
For that’s just part of history
But up front’s where it’s happening
Up where there’s so much mystery

The real enjoyment of living
Well, it’s not back where we have been
Just look forward with thanksgiving
To another new year, or ten

Life is searching all the byways
Never should you ever refrain
Because if you want to live life

Now, some folks ride the train of life
But always looking out the rear
Just watching miles of life roll by
Silently marking off the years

They just sit in sad rememberance
Of wasted days and nights gone by
Then they curse life for what it was
And hang their mournful head and cry

I don’t concern myself with that
Cause I took a different vent
I look forward to what life holds
And not backward to what I’ve spent

So now, strap me to the engine
Make it as secure as can be
Cause I want to be out in front
To see all life that I can see

I want to feel the winds of change
When it’s blowing right in my face
See the wheels of life rearrange
Zeal for life, going place to place
I want to see what life can cast
Cause I’m not looking at the past
