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 I�m 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 I�m gonna leave them there till all hell breaks loose
Then take them out and carve a statue for you

I�m glad you decided to catch the wind
I hope it takes you someplace that you�ve 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 that�s alright. You know, that�s alright with me

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

Sitting here in the Desert Queen Caf� 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
There�s nothing more I could say to you, that you don�t already know

I�m glad you decided to catch the wind
I hope it takes you someplace that you�ve 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
It�s best you leave last night in last night
It�s just the way it goes
