22 Gotta Git Along

words & music by Stan Davis
I DONE FELL OFF MY HORSE
O’ COURSE, I’M TALKIN’ METAMORPHIC’LLY
AND WHEN YOU FALL
THEN Y’ALL HAVE GOTTA CRAWL BACK TO YER FEET
I HAD MY SIGHT SET ON THE FIGHT
DEFENDIN’ RIGHT FROM WRONG
WHEN IN THE END I SHOULDA BIN DEPENDIN’ ON
HOW WE GOTTA GIT ALONG

I SHOULDA KEPT MY HEAD
INSTEAD OF STEPPIN’ OUTTA LINE
TRYIN’ TA WALK THE TALK
AND BLOCK OUT ALL THOSE BAD THOUGHTS FROM MY MIND
SOMETIMES TO WALK AWAY
THEY SAY IS THE BEST WAY TO BE STRONG
AND LET ALL THOSE DANG BYGONES BE BYGONE
‘CAUSE WE GOTTA GIT ALONG

GOTTA GIT ALONG, GIT ALONG, LITTLE DOGGIE
GOTTA GIT ALONG, GIT ALONG
GOTTA GIT ALONG, GIT ALONG, LITTLE DOGGIE
GOTTA GIT ALONG, GIT ALONG

YER WORDS ARE HOLLOW
IF YOU DON’T FOLLOW THE GOOD OL’ GOLDEN RULE
DOIN’ ONTO OTHERS
AS YOU WANT THOSE OTHERS DOIN’ ONTO YOU
YOU’RE GONNA FIND AN EYE FER EYE
GITS YA BLIND BEFORE TOO LONG
SO KEEP SEEIN’ AND KEEP BEIN’ FOCUSED ON
HOW WE GOTTA GIT ALONG

GOTTA GIT ALONG, GIT ALONG, LITTLE DOGGIE
GOTTA GIT ALONG, GIT ALONG
GOTTA GIT ALONG, GIT ALONG, LITTLE DOGGIE
GOTTA GIT ALONG, GIT ALONG!

KINDNESS ‘STEAD OF BEIN’ CRUEL
FOLLOWIN’ THE GOLDEN RULE
THE ONLY WAY THAT ME AND YOU’LL GO ON
IS WE GOTTA GIT ALONG!
