RIDE TO TOMORROW

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


              E
          I.  so long ago

              I had a home
              A
              with water that
                             E     B7
              flowed hot and cold,
              E
              a roof and floor,

              locks on the door,
              A
              a perfect home
                              E
              for men growing old.
              A
              one morning
                                    E
              I saw time through my window.
              A
              a wagon train

              with horses came
                           B7
              to ride to tomorrow.


              E
         II.  a crazy man

              they say I am
              A
              to leave my home
                           E      B7
              and ride the storm.
                  E
              but I'd rather pain

              of freezing rain
              A
              than freezing me
                             E
              and riding the norm.
              A
              this morning
                               E
              we saw life stabilizin'.
              A
              yesterday's air

              drove us from there
                             B7
              to chase the horizon,


                           A
   CHORUS A:  to ride to tomorrow.
              B7
              they may say
                E                    B7
              today is just made for you.
                                 A
              but don't forget tomorrow
              B7               E
              we must build ourselves;
                                 B7
              there's no time to lose.
                        A        E
              ride to tomorrow.


              E
        III.  the folks we pass

              of ev'ry class
              A
              all smile and they
                            E      B7
              take our photograph.
              E
              they wave goodbye

              and wonder why
              A
              they couldn't be
                          E
              on the same path.
              A
              so long ago
                             E
              I stood by the roadside.
              A
              but I couldn't now

              that I know how
                              B7
              that feeling is inside


              /// REPEAT CHORUS A ///


                        A
   CHORUS B:  ride to tomorrow.
              B7
              they used to tell me,
                 E                    B7
              "today is just made for you!"
                                A
              but I found out tomorrow
              B7               E
              we must build ourselves;
                                 B7
              there's no time to lose.
                        A        C#m
              ride to tomorrow!
