Misfortune Far Behind

words/music: Mark Melloan

Verse 1:

If your whole world, all you have and all you are
is hanging in the balance now,
your worn out dreams, your played out songs,
Well, you know that you know a little more about you
than you did when you did what you had to do

Verse 2:

Solid wood sure sounds good with metal wire,
so let's sing and make some music now,
We're getting young, Nobody's getting old,
so give me soul, Let a little bit of heaven shine down,
Give me hope, a little something for the heart to hold

Chorus 1:

Let's leave misfortune far behind, far behind
and keep on walking down this road
past only chances and the no good circumstances
that'll turn your head and dog you as you go,
We're all learning this old song as we go along

Verse 3:

One girl, one boy, one life, one love, one baby now,
One was alone, and two they'd grown, but, baby, three,
Three can make a fine folk band,
Baby, three, you've got a hand
holding each of your hands

Chorus 2:

Let's leave misfortune far behind, far behind
and keep on walking down this road
past only chances and the no good circumstances
that'll turn your head and dog you as you go

Chorus 3:

Let's leave misfortune far behind, far behind
and keep on walking down this road
past only chances and the no good circumstances
that'll turn your head and dog you as you go,
We're all learning this old song as we go along
