Leather On My Shoes

This song is by Chris de Burgh and appears on the album Flying Colours (1988).

i've got leather on my shoes,
and i've got a dream to live,
there is nothing left to lose,
so i'm going,
i've got a suitcase here in my hand,
and i've got a hungry heart,
and i'm going to join the millions,
there before me, on the freedom road;
no-one's coming to my door,
and all my friends have gone,
there's no work here anymore,
it's deserted,
and though i know i hate to leave,
from this land that i love,
there's a new tomorrow waiting,
yes it's shining on the freedom road,
on the freedom road;
oh sometimes it's going to be lonely,
sometimes it will be sad,
but i've got to keep on going,
until i hold that promised land,
in the palm of my hand;
nothing ventured, nothing gained or won,
without a hard fight,
we would never reach the sun,
without trying,
and when we're a million miles from home,
out in the starry night,
we will see we're not alone,
in the heavens, out on freedom road,
out on freedom road... out on freedom road.
