He hit the road  He walked the walk  He plumbed his own self  Like a sweet water well  And spewed like crystal fountains  All his dreams  At first a tiny handful read him

The victory was won back then

I creep along at a snail's pace  And tell myself this is no race  And day by day face truth again  The victory was won back then
