Ben Sollee - The Pursuit of Happiness

rate me

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.
