  • I watched the water rise in our house
    The rain poured in and washed out our stuff
    My father drank from beer bottles
    Then he'd say,
    "We'll walk on, walk on. What's done, is done.
    Walk on, my son. Never let this world drag you down."

    All that we had was deep in the mud
    Our photographs and family treasures
    My mother drank from beer bottles
    Then she'd say,
    "We'll walk on, walk on. What's done, is done.
    Walk on, my son. Never let this world drag you down."

    Don't let it bring you down (and let your head drop down)
    Don't let the sun go down (and let your light go out)
    Don't let yourself fall down
    Just pick yourself up from the street and get up on your feet

    Walk on, walk on. What's done, is done.
    Walk on, my son. Never let this world drag you down.
    Never let this world drag you down. Writer/s: Kelly Jones
