From Here On Down, It's Uphill All The Way
by C. Carson Parks
Talk about being low down with the blues
I’d need a ladder just to tie my shoes
And as I look around, there’s only one thing left to say:
From Here On Down, It’s Uphill All The Way.

Verse # 1
Well, the fortunes of life blow to and fro
And the waves of love both ebb and they flow
And happiness, they say, will meet you ‘bout half way
Well my half keeps getting longer every day.

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse # 2
Well I used to get excited when I was younger
To see the things life had in store for me.
Well, now I’m at the store and, man, I hunger!
But these empty shelves are ‘bout to get the best of me!

(Repeat Chorus)
