Left this town with a memory and nothin’ to my name
But an old guitar and a melody running through my brain
People said, “You crazy fool, ain’t never gonna get that far
Start rollin’ down the track, you can’t go back"

Kicked around some places, a man should never go
By fortune and the grace of God, I learned to just say no
I wish I had everything I spent but it don’t work that way
Keep rollin’ down the track, you can’t go back

Gone's gone and done is done
Lord knows I ain’t the only one
Stopped along the way

Can’t go back
Gone's gone and done is done
Lord knows I ain’t the only one
Stopped along the way

Thankful for the places and the people I have known
Live by every tender word and every kindness shown
Hopefully I’ve left a little something in return
Keep rollin’ down the track, you can’t go back
Keep rollin’ down the track, you can’t go back

You can’t go back, shaka, laka, boom, boom
You can’t go back
You can’t go back, shaka, laka, boom, boom
You can’t go back

You can’t go back, you can’t go back
You can’t go back, shaka, laka, boom, boom
You can’t go back
You can’t go back

You can’t go back
