about

writtn by rob lamothe, tom wilson, and lynn miles

lyrics

my daddy raised me not to beg for nothing
never look back and to stand my ground
to be a man is to never show fear
and I faked my way from there to here

you were raised not to ask no questions
bite your tongue and bide your time
i don’t need you waiting in the kitchen
i don’t want you to tow the line
no

won’t get nowhere standing there cryin’
moanin’ and wailin’ in the pouring rain
can’t get nothing through the eye of a needle
but you might get to heaven on a broke down train
oh yeah

now you ain’t waiting for a knight in shinin’ armour
and I don’t need you to rescue me
but if you want love i’m right there with ya
let’s start with the truth and see where it leads

now i’m done waiting for my life to get perfect
i’m not lying in a bed of regret
i’ve come too far and cried too hard
and i ain’t ready to give up yet
no

won’t get there nowhere standing here cryin’
moanin’ and wailin’ in the pouring rain
can’t get nothing through the eye of needle
but you might get to heaven on a broke down train
yeah

maybe i thought it would be too much work
to change my old fashioned ways
i must have believed that I could never make a promise
to love somebody every single day

yeah we won’t get nowhere standing here cryin’
moanin’ and wailin’ in the pouring rain
can’t get nothing through the eye of needle
but you might get to heaven on a broke down train
you might get to heaven on a broke down train
you might get to heaven on a broke down train

about

Rob Lamothe Ontario

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
