Flower Power and "Just Keep On" by Clifton Abbott

Just keep on a-livin' an' keep on a-givin',
An' keep on a-tryin' to smile;
Just keep on a-singin', a-trustin' and a-clingin'
To the promise of an after while.
For the sun come up and the sun goes down,
An' the morning follows night.
There's a place to rest like a mother's breast,
An' a time when things come right.
Just keep on believin' an' a-hidin' all your grievin',
An' keep on a-tryin' to cheer.
Just keep on a-prayin', a-lovin' an' a-sayin'
The things that we love to hear.

For the tide comes in an' the tide goes out,
An' the dark will all turn bright;
There's a rest from the load an' an end to the road,
An' a place where things come right.
~Clifton Abbott
