Carry On
J.J. Cale Lyrics

If life's little downs they keep coming around
Carry on, carry on
With darkness all about, you want to scream and shout
Carry on, carry on
Don't cry baby, look at where you've been
Everybody knows you just need a friend
Please, please, please, if you're down on your knees
Carry on, carry on
Your head is full of doubt, you can't figure it out
Carry on, carry on

Between the time it takes to make all those mistakes
Carry on, carry on
It don't matter what you say or do
It just seems to work out if you want it to
Let out all the slack, take it off your back
Carry on, carry on
Let me bend your ear, never shed a tear
Carry on, carry on
Carry on, carry on

One of the most thoughtful and influential songwriters of his time. Many who have made it in the blues and roots world over the last 40 years will say this guy is one of the best. We have lost a genius.

@Norbert Köstenbauer May I just say, your city is absolutely beautiful, and every moment I spent exploring it was a sheer pleasure. Love and respect from a fellow JJ Cale fan in Australia (the country that is easily confused with yours, haha - I remember there were even shirts saying "Austria - We don't have kangaroos!" xD)
