Story behind the song
Wrote this song after a long talk with a french traveller who was at a low point in her life in Goa, India.
It was springtime when she left her home
With a sparkle in her eye
It was winter when I met her
Said she'd seen much better times
She said you know I've lookin' for a better way of life
And I'm gonna keep on searchin' till I find it.
She told me about the good times
And all the fun she'd had
She said I'm not gonna try to fool you none
There's also been the bad
I believe that love's the answer
But sometimes it's so hard
To walk the straight and the narrow in this world.
Lady keep on walkin' and hold your head up high
Baby keep on talkin', keep the sparkle in your eye
There's a better world a-comin by and by.
She said I realize it's hard sometimes
To live the words you speak
And even when they knock you down
To turn the other cheek
But if there really is a better world
I'll walk the extra mile
She said to me as she turned away
With a teardrop and a smile.
