Well, you wake up in the morning
so alone and blue,
You know it's time to put on your walking shoes;
You look out the window at a sky so grey,
You know it's gonna be another weary ol' day.

The radio's talkin' 'bout snow or rain,
You wonder if the sun will ever shine again;
It rained yesterday and the day before,
It makes you walk in circles all around the floor.

You gotta keep on walkin', keep on walkin',
You gotta keep on walkin' or you'll go insane.

I thought she was givin' all her love to me,
I guess I wasn't lookin' at reality;
Now I'm still waitin' for the phone to ring,
I'm walkin' in the circles 'round the floor again.

You gotta keep on walkin', keep on walkin',
You gotta keep on walkin' or you'll go insane.

I got an old truck with an empty tank,
No money in my pocket, no money in the bank;
Can't go nowhere like I did before,
I'm out of cigarettes and I'm walkin' the floor.

You gotta keep on walkin', keep on walkin',
You gotta keep on walkin' or you'll go insane.

Now I'm only a number, I don't need a name,
They say the computer is the one with the brain;
Can't get a job 'cause there's nothin' to do,
I'm watching TV in my walkin' shoes.

You gotta keep on walkin', keep on walkin',
You gotta keep on walkin' or you'll go insane.

I asked the doctor what's wrong with me,
He said you're good for fixin' Mount Misery;
The only advice I can give to you,
Is keep on wearin' your walkin' shoes.

You gotta keep on walkin', keep on walkin',
You gotta keep on walkin' or you'll go insane.

Keep on walkin' or you'll go insane.

This song is about a lost man in a world of snow and rainy weather. When she left she took all his sunny days. All that's left to do is keep on walkin'.
