All You Can Carry

Album: Hypnotic Eye (2014)
  • I saw a ghost by the road tonight
    And then my mind ran away with me
    I had a vision at the changing lines
    Something's there but it's trying to leave

    Take what you can, all you can carry
    Take what you can and leave the past behind
    Take what you can, all you can carry
    Take what you can and leave the past behind
    We gotta run

    I saw the flames come across the ridge
    Falling ashes in the northern wind
    And you and I have burned every bridge
    And now we got to save our souls again

    Take what you can, all you can carry
    Take what you can and leave the past behind
    Take what you can, all you can carry
    Take what you can and leave the past behind
    We gotta run

    There's something moving in the dark outside
    I gotta face it when it hits the light
    No one can say I didn't have your side
    No one can say I left without a fight

    Take what you can, all you can carry
    Take what you can and leave the past behind
    Take what you can, all you can carry
    Take what you can and leave the past behind
    We gotta run, run Writer/s: THOMAS EARL PETTY
