Stewie Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia (958* d) RE: Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia 31 Oct 20


Here's another good'un from Kevin Johnson - a song for his youngest son.

SCOTTY
(Kevin Johnson)

With wide eyes you wonder why you understand some
And you don't understand all the rest
Well, little boy, your daddy's been living a while
And I really don't know much myself
I'll teach you the whys and the wherefores
And the ways of this world I have known
But life is a journey of different directions
And sometimes we travel alone

And Scotty
Life can be rough
Life can be tough
Life can be kind
Scotty, life can be fun
Life can be one wonderful time
So live with the good times
And learn from the bad
And laugh at the fun times you've had
Look for the reasons to carry you through
And Scotty
That's all you can do

And you wonder why some days are fun days and Sundays
And some days may not be the same
Well blue skies are many and grey skies are few
So we do what we can in the rain
The whys and the wherefores are there for a reason
And sometimes we don't understand
But life is a journey that's leading us somewhere
And we get there the best way we can

And Scotty life can be rough
Life can be tough
Life can go wrong
Scotty, life can be fun
Life can just come rolling along
So live with the good times
And learn from the bad
And laugh at the fun times you've had
Look for the reasons to carry you through
And Scotty
That's all you can do
