Get Along

Album: Songs for the Saints (2018)
Charted: 22
  • Met a man wearin' a t-shirt, says "Virginia is for lovers"
    Had a Bible in his left hand and a bottle in the other
    He said "all you're really given is the sunshine and your name"
    We both started laughin' when the sky started to rain

    Get along, on down the road
    We've got a long long way to go
    Scared to live, scared to die
    We ain't perfect but we try

    Get along while we can
    Always give love the upper hand
    Paint a wall, learn to dance
    Call your mom, buy a boat
    Drink a beer, sing a song
    Make a friend, can't we all get along

    Saw a model on a billboard, 1-800 get to know me
    Wondered was she photoshopped, or were her eyes really that lonely?
    Did she leave her hometown thinkin' she'd end up in L.A.?
    Did she break down in the desert and get stuck beside the highway?

    Get along, on down the road
    We've got a long long way to go
    Scared to live, scared to die
    We ain't perfect but we try

    Get along while we can
    Always give love the upper hand
    Paint a wall, learn to dance
    Call your mom, buy a boat
    Drink a beer, sing a song
    Make a friend, can't we all get along

    We find out when you die the keys to heaven can't be bought
    We still don't know what love is but we sure know what it's not
    Sometimes you got

    To get along, on down the road
    We've got a long long way to go
    Scared to live, scared to die
    We ain't perfect but we try

    Get along while we can
    Always give love the upper hand
    Paint a wall, learn to dance
    Call your mom, buy a boat
    Drink a beer, sing a song
    Make a friend, can't we all get along Writer/s: Josh Osborne, Ross Copperman, Shane L McAnally
