If it should please you, I have come to play
A glad or a sad tune, I wrote along the way
And a few good songs about the old highway
I been around so long Lord, I guess I'm here to stay

So I'm itching to please you, with a topical song
And a few golden oldies and a little hoedown
And I think I know how to make you feel
We're one and the same now, like a big flywheel

I have seen the best of all those things you can't explain
Wanderlust I did not trust but I never did complain

So if it should please you, put away those blues
Just settle on back now, I'll do my licks for you
It's my own way and that's the way it goes
You're a real good reason for a real good show

I have seen the best of all those things you don't forget
Wanderlust I did not trust and I ain't been done in yet

So if you got the dead end of the dealing shoe
This is your last chance man, we belong to you
It's my own way and that's the way I feel
We're one and the same now, like a big flywheel

So if it should please you, I have come to play
A glad or a sad tune, I wrote along the way
And a few good songs about the old highway
I been around so long Lord, I guess I'm here to stay
We're one and the same now, let's take it away
We're gonna take it real easy, let's take it away
