Just The Way It Goes

Lyrics: Michael Falzarano
Music: Michael Falzarano

A new New Riders song, introduced in 2012. Thanks to Michael Falzarano for the lyrics.

I got my ducks in a row, now Iím gonna shoot them down
Unpack my suitcase and leave this town
Get a ticket for a jet airliner
Then walk all the way down to Carolina
Find a hammer a chisel and a rock
Stick them all in a velvet lined box with a lock
Then Iím gonna leave them there till all hell breaks loose
Then take them out and carve a statue for you

Iím glad you decided to catch the wind
I hope it takes you someplace that youíve never been
But should you pass this way again
I hope you like the statue

Dancing with the ghost of the way things used to be
Dreaming inside a dream, haunted by a memory
That never was and never will be
But thatís alright. You know, thatís alright with me

Iím glad you decided to catch the wind
I hope it takes you someplace that youíve never been
But should you pass this way again
I hope you like the statue

Sitting here in the Desert Queen Cafť drinking coffee eating toast
I can hear your favorite song playing on the kitchen radio
If you were here with me right now
Instead of these scrambled eggs and hashed browns
Thereís nothing more I could say to you, that you donít already know

Iím glad you decided to catch the wind
I hope it takes you someplace that youíve never been
But should you pass this way again
I hope you like the statue

When the spell is broken by the morning light
And the blush is off the rose
Itís best you leave last night in last night
Itís just the way it goes
