One Chance Left for Happiness

Born sad and broken-hearted
Happiness is so hard to find and guarantee
Most days I get up hopin’
My life will head on back to me
But no matter where I look
I can’t find it, happiness, no guarantee

Some days I feel like packin’
Sayin’ goodbye to all weighin’ so heavy on me
Don’t know where I’ll be goin’
But can’t stay here, luck’s run out on me
One good chance left to make it
Can’t waste it now, things aren’t workin’ here for me

Tried my best to make things work
And find that missin’ part of me
But no matter where I look
I can’t find it, and there’s no guarantee
So I guess I’ll just be leavin’
Takin’ that last chance with me

So I guess I’ll just be leavin’
Takin’ that last chance with me

Note: Another early 70’s poem in search of music.
This one felt like a Country Western song back then. And
yes, this is kind of a sad one.

  1. Thanks Andrew, Dan, Pat, Kent, and Aurora. You are too funny. Yep, it is that kind song. But, singers are still singin’ ’bout this stuff. Amazing, eh?

  2. “Tried my best to make things work
    And find that missin’ part of me
    But no matter where I look
    I can’t find it, and there’s no guarantee”

    Somehow it is so true for me for a while now…
