Lyrics

Pittsburg Steel

Written By: Kershaw Spong

WELL ONE OF THESE DAYS IT SEEMS I'M GOING TO GET FED UP WITH MEANS OF PROVIDING MY LIVELYHOOD
I'M GOING TO GET IN MY CAR AND DRIVE AS FAR AS THESE OLD TIRES WILL GO BEFORE THEY BLOW OUT ON ME

WELL MAYBE THAT AIN'T VERY FAR CAUSE THE THREAD ON MY TIRES ARE WORN BUT I DON'T GIVE A DAMN
CAUSE I'M TIRED IF LISTENING TO WHAT i CAN AND CAN'T DO
FROM A MAN WHO STILL WEARS HIS HAIR LIKE 1962

I'M GOING TO GET OUT ON THE BLACK TOP WITH A CAR THAT WILL REALLY HOP WHEN I PUT IN THIRD GEAR
AND ALL MY FEARS THEY JUST SETTLE DOWN LIKE THE DUST I LEAVE BEHIND ON THE ROAD ON THE WHITE LINE

tHE ROAD GOES ON FOREVER STRAIGHT INTO THE SETTING SUN CHASING ALL MY DREAMS IN MY WINDSHEILD
AND AT THE RIGHT MOMENT WHEN THE SUN TOUCHES DOWN YOU CAN DRIVE 85 AND STILL STAND STILL
IN A RIVER OF PITTSBURG STEEL ON WHEELS
YEA A RIVER OF PITTSBURG STEEL ON WHEELS

I LIKE TO GET OUT ON THE ROAD WHERE A FOOL CAN CARRY HIS LOAD OUT IN THE NOON DAY SUN WHERE THE HEAT RISES FROM THE HIGHWAY AT A POINT IT MEETS THE SKY I LOST LONG TOME AGO

WITH EVERYSIGN I SEE FLASHING BY MY SIDE I GOING TO CLAP MY HANDS CAUSE I KNOW THAT'S ONE MORE PIECE OF LAND BETWEEN ME AND WHERE I WAS BEFORE

i'M GOING TO DRIVE OUT TO THE COAST AND SCAMMBLE TO THE MOST HIGH POINT THAT I CAN FIND AND STARE OUT AT THE SINKING SUN ON A DYING RED SEA
I'M GOING TO CATCH ONE THESE DAYS I SAID IT WAS SO

CHORUS

Soldier's Lance

Written By: Joseph Kershaw Spong

Soldier’s Lance

When you’re tired, you’re in the desert
And feeling scorched and bound
Ain’t no water for miles and miles around
Well just remember Longinus
A soldier in bible times
He served four tours of duty – was going blind
He was ordered to strike the rock up on Calvery
When the water came rushing out – he could see

Chorus

And who would have thought a soldier’s lance
Would bring a second chance
And pierce the heart and side of all mankind
And who would have thought a soldier’s lance
Would bring a second chance
A stream of water and blood that healed the blind

BREAK GFC – GFC – G G7 G

Like the soldier, you strike the rock
And there your springs will be
And the lance that made you blind now makes you see

So don’t forget to strike the rock
And there your streams be found
Living waters bubbling out from higher ground

Chorus
