Vandoliers – Sixteen Years lyrics
[Verse 1]
Yeah it took sixteen years
And a hundred thousand miles
I was a preacher's son who lost his way for a while
I sang a poor man's song
No one could hear
It took a hundred thousand miles and sixteen years

[Chorus]
Sixteen years
I've been working for sixteen years
Yeah I'm gonna make it if it takes another sixteen years

[Verse 2]
Yeah I've got broken bones
And bloody hands
A whiskey-tone voice holding on by a strand
They say time will heal
But that time ain't here
It takes a hundred thousand miles and sixteen years

[Chorus]
Sixteen years
I've been working for sixteen years
Yeah I'm gonna make it if it takes another sixteen years
Sixteen years
I've been working for sixteen years
Yeah I'm gonna make it if it takes another sixteen years

[Bridge]
And a hundred thousand miles
Of fist-fights and unpaid trials
Living the dream or just in denial
For another hundred thousand miles

[Chorus]
Sixteen years
I've been working for sixteen years
Yeah I'm gonna make it if it takes another sixteen years
Sixteen years
I've been working for sixteen years
Yeah I'm gonna make it if it takes another sixteen years
Yeah I'm gonna make it if it takes another sixteen years
