1st Verse

Lucinda Jones, workin' at the IHOP
Ten years worth of bacon, eggs, and tears
She's waited on every creed and color
While waitin' on this day to get here


The graveyard shifts, two big tips
Makin' every quarter count
Was worth it all to see her son
In that cap and gown


There are times in life when you gotta crawl
Lose your grip, trip and fall
When you can't lean on no one else
That's when you find yourself
I been around, and I notice that
Walkin's easy when the road is flat
Them danged ol' hills will get you every time
Yeah, the good Lord gave us mountains
So we could learn how to climb
(Hey, oh)

2nd Verse

Private Bobby Dunn came back from the war
Lost his leg, but they couldn't take his will
Hell bent to run in that local marathon
He trained through the endless pain and pills


It hurt so bad that sometimes
That he just had to cry
He didn't stop until he crossed that finish line

(Repeat Chorus)


This world ain't fair
It can knock you on your butt
You can just lie there, or you can get back up
You gotta get back up

(Repeat Chorus)
