  • So I'm down and so I'm out
    But so are many others
    So I feel like tryin' to hide
    My head 'neath these covers

    Life is like the seasons
    After winter comes the spring
    So I'll keep this smile awhile
    And see what tomorrow brings

    I've been told and I believe
    That life is meant for livin'
    And even when my chips are low
    There's still some left for givin'

    I've been many places
    Maybe not as far as you
    So I think I'll stay awhile
    And see if some dreams come true

    There isn't much that I have learned
    Through all my foolish years
    Except that life keeps runnin' in cycles
    First there's laughter, then those tears

    But I'll keep my head up high
    Although I'm kinda tired
    My gal just up and left last week
    Friday I got fired

    You know it's almost funny
    But things can't get worse than now
    So I'll keep on tryin' to sing
    But please, just don't ask me now Writer/s: Gayle Caldwell
