I was down in the valley of the shadow of death
where the passion for life drained like blood from my chest

and it took more than my will just to take a step
the comforts of hope were gone
in a silence so black that I wished for the blues

every desperate prayer seemed like heaven refused
and some days I found faith in just tying my shoes

it was all i could do to press on
then you came and lifted me and told me to tie my shoes and come on ... come on

on the ocean so lonesome I was not left alone
i had some heavy weight fears that threatened to drown me like a stone

and then you carried my heart ache like it was your own
till the currents of sorrow were gone

you once said
"I pray your memories of the past will not hold you down,
not be an anchor but treasures. let my love bring wind to your sails
and press on"

so now in your time of troubles I come to you and tell you
tie your shoes and come on
press on, me amigo and keep on
you have the streangth to walk on

you kept after me to keep on
so let me remind you to tie your shoes and walk on
cause my good friend we must keep on
