Mudcake Shoes Blues

VERSE 1
I'm standing under this ladder
all I see are broken rungs
bright blue sky up above me
while the low down blues are being sung

As I harken to the spirit
of some birds way up so high
I trudge along in my mudcaked shoes
with a whistle then I sigh

CHORUS
cause oft times in this world
you think you here the call
and you're reaching up for sunbeams
when the rain begins to fall

hear that thunder in the distance
see the trees begin to sway
I thought I’d find some shelter
but that rock ...it just rolled away

VERSE 2
I try not to complain too, much
cause I'm grateful for the most
I've friends a plenty calling
still I’m lonely as a ghost

my mind is like some freight-train
with box cars full of dreams
but we're headed fast down around some bend
to a place I’ve never been

CHORUS
cause oft times in this life we live
you think you found a home
and you lay your roots upon the land
when your shaken to the bone

hear that thunder in the distance
see the trees begin to sway
I thought I’d found some shelter
but that rock, it just rolled away

VERSE 3
now I loved somebody madly
but it seems that they've moved on
so I contemplate so sadly
all the things that have gone wrong

rock of ages hear them trumpets
how I love that gospel sound
you can make your way to heaven
with your feet right on the ground

CHORUS
yes oft times as we live and breath
you may feel you can't go on
the power of the natural
it's that what 'll keep you strong

hear that thunder in the distance
see them trees begin to sway
we thought there'd be some shelter
but that rock, it just rolled away

OUTRO
Rock of ages
cleft for me
can I hide myself
in thee
