    Lyrics

    Well they called the flat plains Kansas a long, long time ago
    When they'd seen the gates of glory and the fire down below
    The many great decisions of the people in this place
    You could tell the strength within them, you could see it their face

    Well it's been 9 or 10 years since I started my ramblin' round
    And from hand to mouth I was livin' playing every bar in town
    Though a dollar a day didn't go too far I could never deny my pride
    I couldn't lay back and be taken care of while the world went by outside

    So I went to school to learn but I didn't like what they'd teach
    And I went to church to pray but I didn't like what they'd preach
    I was hard-headed, young and angry, and I felt I could take the heat
    And I had to find out my own way how to live out on the street

    So I packed my bags and I left here to peruse the streets alone
    And I saw that side of midnight where the beggars howl and groan
    Places filled with desperation where the future ain't so bright
    But I remember back in Kansas when we sang a song at night

    We sang every step of the way
    Though your dreams can be real don't let them slip slide away
    Doesn't matter at all, let them do as they will
    Someday you'll hear them call for you

    Goin' around and round from town to town I tried to make my way
    I believed that all my searching and struggling would payoff bug some day
    As a teenager I was rowdy and I played for good and bad
    Though I knew my songs had meaning at times it made me mad

    And I'd fight the wars of nations if it brought somebody peace
    Yes I'd fight the wars of madmen if I knew the fight would cease
    But this ol' world never stopped turning when my mind was full of doubt
    So I went on and played for a dollar a day and I sang
    this song straight out

    Hey hey, every step of the way
    Though your dreams can be real, don't let them slip slide away
    Doesn't matter at all, let them do as they will
    Someday you'll hear them call for you
    Oh yeah , for you
    When they call out your name say it loud and clear
    Come on, come on

    You must have seen me traveling' around you must have seen me there
    Tryin' to find out where I was heading you could have tossed to care
    Well, I had all the questions, I wanted the answers
    I knew in my heart it was all part of the game
    But every step was so much harder, every step of the way
    I knew that time would beat me someday

    Hey hey, every step of the way
    Though your dreams can be real, don't let them slip slide away
    Doesn't matter at all, let them do as they will
    Someday you'll hear them call for you
    Oh yeah, for you
