WORSE CAME TO WORSE (I FEEL ALRIGHT)
by Al Rose © 2016 Wheel See Music (ASCAP)

Pony up the fences and belly up the horse

They’re burning up the smokehouse with a contradicting force

I’m forgetting all my mantras / Forgetting all my lines

Towing all the lines of hope to the valley of the sky


When worse came to worse / I feel alright

Saddle up the curse / I feel alright

Gonna grind it into dirt / I feel alright

I feel alright / I feel alright / I feel alright / I feel alright


I’ve rallied up the defense and we’re taking up the cause

We’ve opened up our fists and seen our hands have turned to claws

Our backs were getting straighter until the walls come tumbling down

Now we’re crawling in the crater 

Of the brand new scaled down


Sometimes my eyes seem open

Sometimes they’re sealed shut

Got one eye on the mountain top and one eye in the rut

Sometimes an angel guides me to where pain and light are joined

And sometimes the rolling wheel ain’t got no point


I’m gonna pound the mighty trail into the blurry dust of dirt

The wind’s a mighty gale forcing horses to desert

And I’m curiously rusted and I’m suffering from gripe

But we’ll circle every wagon and we’ll make it through  


When worse came to worse / I feel alright

Saddle up the curse / I feel alright

Gonna grind it into dirt / I feel alright

I feel alright / I feel alright / I feel alright / I feel alright
