Ain’t it funny how things can change
One day it’s sunny, the next day it rains
But life goes on in between
The highs and lows
You always said I wouldn’t amount to much
No matter what I did it wasn’t good enough
And I should have hung it up
A long time ago
But I’m still dreaming with both eyes open
I know just where I’m going
And nothing, nothing’s gonna stand in my way
It’s an uphill climb but I don’t care
I won’t rest ‘til I get there
And when I do I plan to stay
If you took my dreams and laid them end to end
They’d stretch to the moon and back again
Now tell me, if that’s a sin
Then I’m going straight to hell
But you know I could never survive
Working a job from nine to five
It’s a form of prison life
Without the cell
San Houston crossed the river Red
As an eagle circled overhead
He looked up to the skies and said,
“This is my destiny”
Now somewhere down I45
There’s an Eagle rolling through the night
I look in the rearview just to find
Houston’s now a memory
Repeat Chorus
