Once Upon A Time


Written by Rick Danko and Emmett Grogram. Album: Rick Danko

 Once upon a time, everything I thought of           
 Somehow seemed to rhyme                             
 The wise were always old                            
 And the young were always showed                    
 But very early on, I was spun a different yarn      
 Tried to get along, just by knowin right from wrong 

 The best offer is a helping hand                    
 Everyone needs the promised land                    
 And whether you're young or old                     
 Never ever let yourself get put on hold             

 I would sit on grandps's knee..just to wear his hat 
 And listen to the tales                             
 From his world of make believe..                    
 As the child comes of age, leave him alone          
 To turn the page                                    
 
 Luck is the spine..a broken promise of another's mind
 Straight goods really are what money cannot buy
 Choose your side, and walk with pride          
 There's no reward for suicide...
