For the GREAT PEACE MARCH, Los Angeles to Washington DC 1986

lyrics

From where I sit destinations abound
places that dreams are made of
but inside of my head, I keep losing ground
with all of the ways that I avoid love

But I can get there from here
I can get there from here
If I can get to the front door
I can get there from here...

Kicking myself for the time I waste
cursing these rocks in my way
But with tolerant hope and a gamblers good grace
they become stepping stones leading my way:

I can get there from here
I can get there from here
If I can get to the front door
I can get there from here...

(BRIDGE)
I've got a worn-out soul
and good shoe leather
time will take it's toll
but the road gets better

Everyday people all over the earth
Cover impossible miles
And in their footsteps I see my own worth
With a will and a dream to survive

and I can get there from here
I can get there from here
If I can get to the next town
I can get there from here...

we can get there from here
we can get there from here
Though the borders be closed down
We'll turn the whole world upside down
Cause if we get to the next town
...we can get there from here
