                        Nothing Comes from Nothing              ©2001 Rick Garvin

         

         1. Nothing comes from nothing,  that's what the old folks say

                Everyone in life comes from somewhere, some when, some way

                You want to renew,  leave the past alone

                Unless you know where you've been, there's no where to go.

 

                          Chorus

                Donít forget where you come from

                It's with you everywhere you go from now on.

 

                2. Nothing comes from nothing, what do the old folks mean?

                It explains itself  if you can dream

                Everything in life goes round and round

                Everyone in life has ups and downs

                Even the bad times can teach you who you are

                that's what I've found.

 

                Chorus

                Donít forget who you come from

                They're with you everywhere you go from now on

 

                3. Nothing comes from nothing, that's what the old folks say

                Everyone in life comes from somewhere, some when, some way

                                                       

                   Chorus 

                Donít forget who you come from

                They're with you everywhere you go from now on

 

                And life goes on.
