If your tale has not been told
keep moving on keep moving on
feeling young while you’re growing old
from Selma to Montgomery is a mighty long road

Time will move and time will tell
keep moving on keep moving on
see through these eyes then you’ll know me well
from Selma to Montgomery is a mighty long road

The lord and the devil at 2am
working through their differences as best they can
the hate is always tempting without a plan
but I’m a man

All the lies bought and sold
keep moving on keep moving on
take your time ’till love takes ahold
from Selma to Montgomery is a mighty long road

Oh no….baby please find your way
to believing in me
believing in me for just one more day….just one more day

Redemption washes away the sin
keep moving on keep moving on
of judging by the color of my skin
from Selma to Montgomery is a mighty long road

The ghosts of those who’ve come before
they tip-toe across your bedroom floor
now that I’m gone they need you more
they need you more

If your tale has not been told
keep moving on keep moving on
feeling young while you’re growing old
from Selma to Montgomery is a mighty long road
from Selma to Montgomery is a mighty long road
from Selma to Montgomery is a mighty long road
