Randy Travis – Ants On A Log lyrics
(Skip Ewing/Donny Kees)

Ants on a log
Floatin down a river
Runnin around
But not gettin anywhere
Powerstearin wheels
Just ain't connected
And we can't jump off like flees on a dog
Can't fly away like flies on a hog
We're really just along for the ride like ants on a log

I got an uncle
He plays a game
Can't win it
He's got a mold
Tries to fit everybody else in it
When's he gonna learn he's bangin his head on the wall?
He ain't gonna change
And he looks at me strange when I tell him

We're all just ants on a log
Floatin down a river
Runnin around
But not gettin anywhere
Powerstearin wheels
Just ain't connected
And we can't jump off like flees on a dog
Can't fly away like flies on a hog
We're really just along for the ride like ants on a log

We all know people
We yella t the cars and the traffic
Folks in a hurry
Life's full of heartache and havok
I finally learned how to lay back and let life happen
I just image
The angels up in heaven
Lookin down at us and laughin

At ants on a log
Floatin down a river
Runnin around
But not gettin anywhere
Powerstearin wheels
Just ain't connected
And we can't jump off like flees on a dog
Can't fly away like flies on a hog
We're really just along for the ride like ants on a log

And just about the time you think
You're rollin in clover
Along comes a rabbit
And the world tips over

Ants on a log
Floatin down a river
Runnin around
But not gettin anywhere
Power stear wheels
Just ain't connected
And we can't jump off like flees on a dog
Can't fly away like flies on a hog
We're really just along for the ride like ants on a log

Yeah we're really just along for the ride like ants on a log
