  • Lyrics: I was down on my luck when a blue pickup truck Pulled over to give me a ride This funny old man, wrinkled and tan said"It sure must be cold out tonight" He shook my hand and said "I'll take you as far as I can" On that cold winter's night ,underneath his dome light I told him how my life had gone bad I left my hometown after trouble went down and I had every reason to be sad he nodded his head as the sun began to rise He turned to me and looked me in the eye He said; "I hope you find your fortune I hope you will begin To love what life brings to you And take each moment in Be kind to yourself and everyone else" In the light of the day as the truck pulled away I thought about my Mary Lynn With a fatherless son..Lord what have I done? That's no way for a life to begin The words that old man had said were all true I knew right away what to do.. chorus Twenty years from that day I heard a young man say that his life was getting him down With a streak of bad luck he said he'd get in his truck And hightail it straight out of town I looked at my wife where my fortune had lead I turned to my son and I said... "I hope you find your fortune I hope you will begin To love what life brings to you And take each moment in Be kind to yourself and everyone else"
