B Street Blues / Car Won’t Go

Honesty

By NP Tiedemann
Lyrics NP Tiedemann, Dave Schaefer
   

I’ve tried to live my life
To always tell the truth
I had such lofty goals
It was the hallmark of my youth
And in each passing day
My vision starts to blur
Life seems to chip away
At all that I held dear

Honesty
Where have you gone
Haven’t seen you around
In oh, so long
Honesty
I count you as my friend
I need you more than ever now
To carry me to the end

The real things in this life I seek
Get dirtied day by day
Get buried in the mud of time
Too often slip away
The road I walk is crooked
I’ve scuffed my shoes sometimes
Fallen and Forgotten
I keep starin’ at the prize

Honesty
Where have you gone
Haven’t seen you around
In oh, so long
Honesty
I count you as my friend
I need you more than ever now
(To) carry me to the end

Honesty
Oh my old friend
Come stay with me again

Honesty
Where have you gone?
Haven’t seen you around
In oh, so long
Honesty
Why don’t you take my hand
And lift me up with you
Make me a righteous man

It seems the life we’re given
Sometimes erases our memory
Of holding to the truthful things
That we hoped to be

Honesty
Where have you gone?
Haven’t seen you around
In oh, so long
Honesty
Why don’t you take my hand
And lift me up with you
Make me a righteous man

Honesty
Where have you gone
Haven’t seen you around
In oh, so long
Honesty
I count you as my friend
I need you more than ever now
(To) carry me to the end

Honesty
Where have you gone?
Haven’t seen you around
In oh, so long
Honesty
I count you as my friend
I need you more than ever now
(To) carry me to the end
