way to get along

Please Mr. President / words were made to fly / put on your tie / kiss your wife goodbye / and pick up the phone / they’re waiting there at home / sure it was an accident / but can’t you say that what we did was wrong / fly around the world / just to try and find a way to get along / think about your mom / sitting in her chair / silver in her hair / suddenly she picks up the phone / and lets out a moan / what if it was you and all she knew / was that her little boy was gone / fly around the world / just to try and find a way to get along / watching the pebbles go down into the river / watching the river go down into the deep / all night riding along / with just a shiver / you can only come before the crown / with the company you keep / you can only come before the crown / with the company you keep / he was just a man / shot down in his prime / didn’t have the time / to climb another hill in the road / his tale has been told / lightning ripped the fabric of their lives / just like the striking of a gong / fly around the world / just to try and find a way to get along / lightning ripped the fabric of their lives / just like the striking of a gong / fly around the world / just to try and find a way to get along.
