LyricsEdit

Gotta keep moving, gotta keep moving
Blues falling down like hail
Gotta keep moving
Blues falling down like hail
And the daylight keeps moving (??)
There's a hellhound on my trail

If today were Christmas evening
And tomorrow Christmas day
If today were Christmas evening
And tomorrow Christmas day
All I would need is but a little sweet rider
And the world would fade away

Gotta keep moving, gotta keep moving
Blues falling down like hail
Gotta keep moving
Blues falling down like hail
And the daylight keeps to worrying
There's a hellhound on my trail
