Every Step of the Way 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

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
