WORDS OF EARNEST
(Charles Gearheart)

Lived in the city and I lived in the woods
Lived through the fire and I lived through the flood
Lived through the summer when the creek went dry
Guess I'll keep a-livin' 'til the day I die

I think I've got ev'rything
In my time
Ev'rything I didn't do wadn't worth doin' at that time
Oh no

Talked to the prophets and I talked to the fools
Even tried work and I even tried school
Fell in love, I got pushed through hate
Even drove my car through a big steel gate

I think I've got ev'rything
In my time
Ev'rything I didn't do wadn't worth doin' at that time

Deep in the hills of old Kentucky
Once lived a man I used to know
He up ev'ry mornin' at the crack of dawn
Earnest was his name, you know

He was full of love and understanding
Never had a nickle or a dime
"Happiness is free" is what he said to me
Earnest was a friend of mine

Too many people on the same old road
Loaded down with the same old load
To live a good life you can't do it that way
'Cause ev'ry day's different and it's different ev'ry day

Gotta do ev'rything
In your time
Ev'rything you wanna do's really worth doin' at that time
Oh yeah it is

Nobody knows when I'm lonely
Nobody knows when I'm moved
Nobody knows when I'm happy
Nobody knows that I'm blue

Nobody knows that I love ev'ryone
Nobody knows that I'm fine
Nobody ever gets in my way
'Cause nobody's on my mind
