Lyrics

Momma always told me, you'd better not cry.
Put your troubles in the middle, pass the others on by.
When you're sittin at the table of life's gamblin' game again,
Whatever hand you're holdin girl, you'd better be all in!

Cause when you're sittin in your rockin chair,
wonderin where your money went,
It's good to know when you're feelin' low,
it was time well spent.

So don't let your field lie fallow,like a rusty guitar string.
Make your way, don't waste the day,get out and do your ting.
Pick guitar, wrench on an old car,write a novel or bake some bread.
Don't sit upon your idle hands feelin' heavy like lead.

Cause when you're sittin in your rockin chair,
wonderin where your money went,
It's good to know when you're feelin' low,
it was time well spent.

Just hang on to the good stuff, let the ugliness fade.
It's what you carry in your pocket, that makes you who you are today.
Ups and downs, friends that stick around, written in your very soul,
You've got gifts to give, get up and live, before you wake up old!

Cause when you're sittin in your rockin chair,
wonderin where your money went,
It's good to know when you're feelin' low,
it was time well spent.
