Jacob's Ladder
Huey Lewis & The News Lyrics


I met a fan dancer
Down in South Side Birmingham
She was running from a fat man
Selling salvation in his hand
Now he's trying to save me
We'll I'm doing alright, the best that I can

Just another fallen angel
Trying to get through the night

Step by step, one by one, higher and higher
Step by step, rung by rung
Climbing Jacob's ladder

Coming over the airwaves
The man says I'm overdue
Sing along, send some money
Join the chosen few

Well, Mister I'm not in a hurry
And I don't want to be like you
All I want from tomorrow
Is to get it better than today

Step by step, one by one, higher and higher
Step by step, rung by rung
Climbing Jacob's ladder

All I want from tomorrow
Is to get it better than today

Step by step, one by one, higher and higher
Step by step, rung by rung
Climbing and trying

Step by step, one by one
Step by step

Step by step
Step by step

YES! That's the main message of this song. Climbing Jacob's Ladder means to elevate (in consciousness) day by day.

This song saved my life.
I was a 9 year old boy falling through the cracks of my parents failing marriage. Music was my only friend it seemed, and the feel good music of Huey Lewis and the News never let me down...
Funny how a song can make everything ok ❤

Agree music like this can lift people. I think one reason so many young people have such bad mental health today is they don't have music like this to help them in bad times. Shame. All we can do is help share it with everyone not lucky enough to have heard it.
