First I'd like to say I have been in a writers block for about 2 years . It happenned since i started learning to play guitar. I once posted weekly but I am deffinetly rusty. I figure I have to force one out to get my mind working again. I hope. Here goes.

Title; Dead and Gone.
Writer Ken Lillie
2006

Vs1
Well, he said he was a drifter
I asked him where from
He repley'ed it didn't matter
What behind is dead and gone

Vs 2
He had seat twenty two A
I had twenty two B
He offere'd me his window view
I said it didnt matter to me

Chrs.
He said son do you know where your going
Where your from's, got you on life's road
Life can get so far in front of you
Its easy to carry lifes load
I don't know where I'm going
I see you've just begun
Whats ahead is life's great mystery
Whats behind is dead and gone

Vrs 3
So we sat and talked of the future
He exclaimed he had'nt a clue
I asked him for a cigerette
He just had tobbacco to chew

Vrs 4
At mile marker 461
Well son this is where I get off
I gave him thanks for the copenhagen
He smiled and said, just don't go gett'en lost

Bridge
I often think about that old man
Where life's road took him
Me I keeping pushing forward
Dos'nt matter where I've been

Chrs.
He said son do you know where your going
Where your from's, got you on life's road
Life can get so far in front of you
It's easy to carry lifes load
I don't know where I'm going
I see you've just begun
What's ahead is life's great mystery
Whats behind is dead and gone

lyrics belong in songs, poems bolong in bookstores

Perfect. It gives great visuals and made me think. Some other things too just dont know how to put them in words.
