Ramblin' Blues

I am just saying…
That if it was meant to be,
And it did not,
Then it probably wasn’t me.

Hey, I am just saying…
That if there be pain,
Heart-breaks and cold rain,
Then a smile’s not in vain.

I am just saying…
It better be worth something,
If you’re losing to win,
That game you’re playing.

And I am just saying,
‘Cause I know that speech is free;
But it’s for you to see,
To give a hear or let it be.

Oh and I might be ramblin’,
But yeah I’m thinking this through.
And when things take me tumblin’,
I realize I am on the run too.

I am just saying…
If you been a good daughter or son,
Your Mama’s li’l one,
Your life is far from undone.

Now, I am just saying…
When things turn on you,
Adorn a deep black hue,
Keep a spirited point of view.

I’m just saying…
That if a song makes you happy,
So happy that you cry,
Then sing it till you die.

All I’m saying,
Walk on and walk a thousand mile;
Make it worthwhile,
And crossover in style.

Oh and I might be ramblin’,
But yeah I’m thinking this through.
And when I find myself stumblin’,
I realize I am on the run too.
