Ben Sollee - The Pursuit of Happiness Lyrics



right passed all the places
but i have a reason to go
Kentucky hills and fences
fields clear of their stones
could've find me a crossroads
ask a stranger where to go.
got to find a clear view of the sky
I'd pass the open road.
'bout a half way to Jellico
all the lines were off the road
sun on man patching holes with his bare hands
working as hard i ever seen
he had no taste for the touch greens
cause it ain't nothing like the real thing,
he used the simple machines
he knew how to make the hammer ring.

he said I wanted his bad, as you do
I just stayed willing to take it from somebody else
'cause on my way to happiness
I windup paving the road.

well I came back home
my family was waiting for me
I looked into my sons eyes
and they were wild as the sea.
oh, he asked me a simple question
why do I have to leave?!
oh, cause son
it's a chance to make a living
but don't make the other folks bleed.
Yes, you know I wanted as bad as you do
I just willing to take it from somebody else
'cause on my way to happiness
I made a poor man paving the road, yeeaah.
