You will never be, a man of this world
You will never know the difference.

You don't care for that, that is not for you
You will make it with your own hands.

Build your own house, in your own way
Always try the lonely road.

Be your own man, bother no one
Carry nothing but your own load.

Never Is a Real Long Time.
Never Is a Real Long Time.

You will never be, you don't have to be
But never is a real long time.

We know you speak your mind and you're truthful,
You can make us hang on every word.

Lettem' know you're there, but never lettem' in
That will get you what you well deserve.

Preach your own word, follow no one
If there's a god he has to come to you.

But who will catch you, when you're fallin'
And all your friends are far away and few.

Never Is a Real Long Time.
Never Is a Real Long Time.

You will never be, you don't have to be
But never is a real long time.
