I don't know nothing and I don't know a thing
But if we just keep on listening, together we'll sing

I've been walking for about a thousand years
My feet are tired of crying all the painful tears
And my sight is going blind, my soul is way down low
And I haven't heard a thing, so that's all that I can know

'Cause I don't know nothing and I don't know a thing
But if we just keep on listening together we'll sing, we'll

But I've been thinking and losing lots of sleep
My life is getting longer, Winter snows come kind of deep
But I keep my feet on strong, I'm moving right along
But I haven't seen a thing so that's all that I can know

'Cause I don't know nothing and y'all don't know a thing
But if we just keep on listening, together we'll sing, we'll

Well, I don't think that it's going that good today
I can't take my eyes off of the rain and everybody's going insane
And I don't think that it's going that good today
I can't take my eyes off of the rain and everybody's running away
I ran away to the top of the world today

I've been drinking to drown away my fear
The days are getting shorter, they're getting short
But I still move along and I still don't sing my song
But I haven't heard a thing so I play until I rhyme

'Cause I don't know nothing, y'all don't know a thing
But if we just keep on listening, together we'll sing, we'll

Well, I don't think that it's going that good today
I can't take my eyes off of the rain and everybody's going insane
And I don't think that it's going that good today
I can't take my eyes off of the rain and everybody's running away
I ran away to the top of the world today

Run away from, run away from, run away from you
Run away from, run away from, run away from you
Run away from, run away from, run away from you
