RIDE TO TOMORROW

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


          I.  so long ago
              I had a home
              with water that
              flowed hot and cold,
              a roof and floor,
              locks on the door,
              a perfect home
              for men growing old.
              one morning
              I saw time through my window.
              a wagon train
              with horses came
              to ride to tomorrow.

         II.  a crazy man
              they say I am
              to leave my home
              and ride the storm.
              but I'd rather pain
              of freezing rain
              than freezing me
              and riding the norm.
              this morning
              we saw life stabilizin'.
              yesterday's air
              drove us from there
              to chase the horizon,

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

        III.  the folks we pass
              of ev'ry class
              all smile and they
              take our photograph.
              they wave goodbye
              and wonder why
              they couldn't be
              on the same path.
              so long ago
              I stood by the roadside.
              but I couldn't now
              that I know how
              that feeling is inside

              (repeat chorus A)

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