ROLL ON
(Lyrics by Donny Coyle)

She wakes up at the crack of dawn.
Wrestles her weary bones out of bed and puts the coffee on
She got 3 bodies to clothe and 3 little mouths to feed
Been working 3 jobs for the last 6 years just to make ends meet

And she looks in the mirror. Says hold on.
As she wipes the tears from her tired eyes and rolls on

(CHORUS)
She says I just need a little love
Just a hand to hold and the strength to rise above (for one more day)
I just a little hope
A little faith in something good
And she rolls on

Well he did three tours in Afghanistan.
Got a Purple Heart the last time when he took a bullet in the hand
He’s terrified at the thought of going home to his kin
After living through hell he wonders if he’ll still be good to them

So his head hangs low
And he thinks of his fallen brothers who are never coming home

(CHORUS)
He says I just need a little love.
Just a few kind words and the strength to rise above
Well I just need a little hope
Just a little faith in myself ’cause I’m at the end of my rope.

(BRIDGE)
We all need someone every now and then
Just a little help along the way
‘Cause everybody’s got their story to tell and everybody’s got their own living hell and we’re all in this together.

The last of seven in his family
Out on tour in California when his mom died suddenly
Met a pretty little girl out west and said hey will ya marry me
But sometimes he cries
‘Cause his mom was taken way too soon and he stops to wonder why

(CHORUS)
He says we all need a little love
Just a hand to hold and the strength to rise above (for one more day)
We all need just a little hope sometimes
Just a little faith
To roll on
Roll on
Roll on
