Lyrics

The Promised Land (Can Wait)

Written By: Michael Gadon

I’ve got a guitar in my hands
I’ve got a song in my soul
I’ve got a wide open road
And miles left to go
I’ve got places yet to see
And songs to be sung
I may be getting older
But I’m still feeling young

Chorus
And you can tell everybody in the Promised Land
I ain’t quite ready to join ‘em yet
There’s still some living that I gotta do
And God be willing I’ll take my time
Doing those things I left behind
And living my life
The way I want to be

Hey, Hey, I feel okay tonight
Hey, Hey, I’m feeling alright

I’ve got a whiskey in my hand
I’ve got a gal on my arm
And there’s a band on stage
Playing a country song
The crowd’s feeling good
And so am I
I’ve got myself a partner
And we can dance all night

Chorus
And you can tell everybody in the Promised Land
I ain’t quite ready to join ‘em yet
There’s still some living that I gotta do
And God be willing I’ll take my time
Doing those things I left behind
And living my life
The way I want to be

Hey, Hey, I feel okay tonight
Hey, Hey, I’m feeling alright

I’ve got music in my heart
I’ve got words in my head
I”ve got stories to tell
And things that need to be said
I’ve got plenty of love to give
So take me by the hand
Your still my woman
And I’m still your man

Chorus
And we can tell everybody in the Promised Land
We ain’t quite ready to join ‘em yet
There’s still some living that we gotta do
And God be willing we’ll take our time
Doing those things we left behind
And living our lives
The way we want to be

Hey, Hey, We feel okay tonight
Hey, Hey, We’re feeling alright
