[Non-OSAS Song] John Mellencamp: "Walk Tall"

“Walk Tall”

Written by John Mellencamp

The simple minded
And the uninformed
Can be easily led astray

And those that cannot connect the dots
Hey look the other way
People believe what they want to believe
When it makes no sense at all
So be careful of those killing in Jesus’ name
He don’t believe in killing at all …

Somewhere out in the distance
Is the death of you and me
Even though we don’t think of it much
It’s still out there for us to see
If you treat life like a ballroom fight
You’ll die stinking of gin
No drunkards allowed in heaven
No sinners will get in

Walk tall (keep on walking, keep on talking)
Through this world
