Crawling up a Hill Lyrics

(John Mayall)

Every morning 'bout half past eight,
My Mamma wakes me says
"Don't be late",
Get to the office, tryin' to concentrate,
My life is just a slow train
crawling up a hill.

So I stop one day to figure it out,
I'll quit my job without
a shadow of a doubt,
To sing the blues that I know about,
My life is just a slow train
crawling up a hill.

Minute after minute,
second after second,
Hour after hour goes by,
Working for a rich girl,
staying just a poor girl,
Never stop to wonder why.

So here I am in London town,
A better scene I'm gonna be around,
The kind of music that
won't bring me down,
My life is just a slow train
crawling up a hill.

Every morning 'bout half past eight,
My Mamma wakes me says,
"Don't be late",
I get to the office, tryin'
to concentrate,
My life is just a slow train
crawling up a hill.
 
So I stop one day to figure it out,
I'll quit my job without a shadow of a doubt,
To sing the blues that I know about,
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill.

Minute after minute, second.after second,
Hour after hour goes by,
Working for a rich girl,
Staying just a poor girl,
Never stop to wonder why.

So here I am in London town,
A better scene I'm gonna be around,
The kind of music that won't bring me down,
Life is just a slow train...

So here I am in London town,
A better scene I'm gonna be around,
The kind of music that won't bring me down,
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill,
