12. Overnight Success:
10. Tired Of Gettin' By

Getting' mighty tired of just gettin' by
Stuck here on the ground wishin' I could fly
Sure would be nice to get ahead before I die
'Cause I'm gettin' mighty tired of gettin' by

Year after year I keep on running
An uphill race that never ends
Just when I think I'm on to somethin'
I slide back down and start over again

Used to say that someday soon
I won't have to worry anymore
I wish that I could still believe that
Seems things are harder now than they ever were before

Gettin' mighty tired of just gettin' by
Stuck here on the ground wishin' I could fly
Sure would be nice to get ahead before I die
'Cause I'm gettin' mighty tired of gettin' by

Hope that I don't seem ungrateful
Got a job and a lovin' family
I'm puttin' food there on the table
Maybe that's all there is to life for a guy like me

Like a cloud that's filled with thunder
But no rain to bring itself relief
I stare at the sky and I wonder
If what I am is all I'll ever be

Gettin' mighty tired of just gettin' by
Stuck here on the ground wishin' I could fly, fly, fly
Touch the sun just once before I die
'Cause I'm gettin' mighty tired of gettin' by, by
Gonna give it one more try
'Cause I'm gettin' mighty tired of gettin' by
