#2 / Even If They Say You're Wrong


Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, George Harrison, Roy Orbison
Turning the corner into a brand New Year always reminds me of one of my favorite songs from the Traveling Wilburys. Here's a video:


And here are the lyrics, printed below, with the first excerpt, highlighted, as a kind of advisory to myself:

It's all right. Even if you're old and gray. 
It's all right. You still got something to say.

End Of The Line 
Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze
Well it's all right, if you live the life you please
Well it's all right, doing the best you can
Well it's all right, as long as you lend a hand

You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring
Waiting for someone to tell you everything
Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring
Maybe a diamond ring

Well it's all right, even if they say you're wrong
Well it's all right, sometimes you gotta be strong
Well it's all right, As long as you got somewhere to lay
Well it's all right, everyday is Judgment Day

Maybe somewhere down the road aways
You'll think of me, wonder where I am these days
Maybe somewhere down the road when somebody plays
Purple haze

Well it's all right, even when push comes to shove
Well it's all right, if you got someone to love
Well it's all right, everything'll work out fine
Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line

Don't have to be ashamed of the car I drive
I'm glad to be here, happy to be alive
It don't matter if you're by my side
I'm satisfied

Well it's all right, even if you're old and gray
Well it's all right, you still got something to say
Well it's all right, remember to live and let live
Well it's all right, the best you can do is forgive

Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze
Well it's all right, if you live the life you please
Well it's all right, even if the sun don't shine
Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the li

  1. What a pleasure to listen to that one again. I've never associated it with new years before, but I have a feeling I will from now on.
